How to Teach: English



Jam-packed with enlivening ideas to help teachers make the subject of English more intellectually challenging for students – and to make it fun too!

This artful addition to Phil Beadle’s How To Teach series is the work of a man whose humility fails to hide his brilliance, providing English teachers with a sophisticated yet simple framework to hook their lessons upon. Covering poetry, grammar, Shakespeare and how to teach writing, Chris Curtis has furnished every page with exciting ideas that can be put into practice immediately.

Each chapter presents a store of practical strategies to help students in key areas – providing apposite examples, teaching sequences and the rationale behind them – and has been accessibly laid out so that teachers can pinpoint the solutions they need without having to spend an age wading through academic theory and pontification to find them.

Suitable for all teachers of English.
