Focusing on how teachers can improve the ways in which they plan their lessons, this book demonstrates how careful planning allows the further development of learning approaches. The author presents a clear understanding of how these approaches can be used by the teacher to assess themselves and their students' learning through:

  • careful consideration of how certain approaches to learning can improve a student's grasp of reading, writing, speaking and listening
  • discussions on how theories and research from leading experts can be applied in the classroom
  • advice on how to use government strategies and ultimately work beyond them to develop learning in the classroom
  • an examination of learning for children of different abilities.

Helping teachers to develop good practice and understanding of learning in a familiar subject context, this book is essential for all those concerned in the teaching of secondary English.
