Abstract

About the book: The place of English in the secondary curriculum has been the subject of intense debate in the general media as well as in education circles. This reader addresses the key issues of that debate in a way that is both accessible and lively. Separate sections cover the historical background to the debate, including the major teaching areas of speaking, listening, reading and writing, assessment and the professional development of teachers within the subject. Specially commissioned articles look at some of the most controversial issues in the subject--for instance the place of grammar and the centrality of literature in the curriculum. Novice English teachers will find this book an invaluable introduction to the complexities of their subject. For their more experienced colleagues, this text will be an invaluable way to keep up to date with current thinking.
