Elements of Language (Holt, Rinehart and Winston) is the first English language arts textbook to fully incorporate media literacy throughout the series for students in grades 6 -12.

As one of the program authors, Renee Hobbs developed the theoretical framework for the "viewing and representing" strand; guided the development of the scope and sequence; served as the authority on terminology, definitions and pedagogy; and directed the planning for the video series.
