Description

Fully updated to reflect changes in teacher education and the curriculum, the Fifth Edition of Learning to Teach English in the Secondary School explores the background to debates about teaching the subject, alongside tasks, teaching ideas and further reading to expand upon issues and ideas raised in the book.

Including chapters on planning, changes to the assessment system, language teaching, and cross-curricular aspects of secondary teaching, this new edition features:

  • changes in policy and practice, including the most recent GCSE reforms;
  • a new chapter on 'Media literacy in English';
  • a consideration of modern digital technology and how it underpins good practice in all areas of English teaching and learning; and
  • cross-referencing to guidance on assessment and well-being and resilience in the core text Learning to Teach in the Secondary School.

A key text for all student teachers, Learning to Teach English in the Secondary School combines theory and practice to present a comprehensive introduction to the opportunities and challenges of teaching English in the secondary school.
