This newly revised second edition looks at ways in which teachers can develop children's abilities in speaking and listening, as required by the National Curriculum. The authors discuss the links between language and learning; offer case studies and suggestions for classroom practice; and provide stimulating activities to help pupils to become more articulate, coherent and effective in standard English.
The book is a suitable text for students taking primary initial teacher training courses. It will also be welcomed as a practical handbook for primary teachers.
