Summary "What is the art of teaching secondary English?" "At a time when school-based English is becoming reductive and mechanistic, the authors of this book reconsider the fundamental philosophy of English teaching, evaluate current practice and offer a practical framework for new approaches to teaching this important subject." "The authors draw on recent initiatives in the area, including the National Literacy Strategy, but offer also wider perspectives on the formation and development of both English and English teaching in a modern society. This will help teachers develop both a personal philosophy and a critical perspective on the various traditions of English teaching as well as on current initiatives and reforms." "The Art of Teaching Secondary English is a practical and accessible resource for everyone involved in English teaching, including teachers and student teachers of English."--BOOK JACKET
