Secondary English : Planning for Learning in the Classroom, Hardback Book

Secondary English : Planning for Learning in the Classroom Hardback


Using their tried-and-tested English Method training, the authors unpack the core learning issues, such as differentiation and the development of thinking skills, essential to all initial teacher training programmes.

Linking theory and practice, with direct links to key theorists and ideas about learning, each chapter includes: a modelled analysis of a pupil's writing or talk on a particular theme; an exploration of the learning challenges within a specific age range or modality of English; focussed, practical activities centered upon a specific text, including oral, written, visual, multi-modal, print-bound and electronic material; and follow-up activities, including immediate questions for reflection, guided reading and ideas for use in the classroom.

This is the complete guide that every trainee English teacher planning for learning in the secondary classroom needs.
