The place of English in the secondary curriculum has recently 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 1993 rewrite of the English Orders, the major teaching areas of speaking, listening, reading and writing, assessment and the contribution of research to classroom practice in English. Over half the chapters are specially commissioned, and look at some of the most controversial issues in the subject, such as the place of grammar and the teaching of Standard English. Novice English teachers will find this book an invaluable introduction to the complexities of their subject. For their more experienced colleagues, it will provide an essential means of keeping up to date with current thinking.
