Meeting the Standards in Secondary English provides detailed subject knowledge, including the detailed pedagogical knowledge needed to teach English in secondary schools, support activities for work in schools and self-study and information on professional development for secondary schools.
This practical, comprehensive and accessible book should prove invaluable for students on secondary initial teacher training courses, PGCE students, lecturers on English programmes and newly qualified secondary teachers.
'If all such books were as thought-provoking and imaginative at finding the spaces in which to confront the issues, we would have little to fear. I will certainly be recommending it to my students next year.' - Bethan Marshall, Times Educational Supplement Curriculum Special
'The writing team can be congratulated on producing a book that…offers sound and intelligent advice to trainee teachers … the strength of the book is that it certainly will help student teachers in a pragmatic sense to meet the standards but will also help them to be interesting and creative English teachers.' - Andrew Goodwyn, Educational Review
