‘This book is comprehensive, up-to-date, critical and authoritative. It is also, above all, well written. It will undoubtedly become standard reading for the next generation of teachers in training and practising teachers will also learn a great deal from dipping into its contents.' - David Wray, Professor of Literacy Education, University of Warwick

‘[A] well organised and comprehensive guide to the teaching of English and the teaching of language’ Margaret Mallett - Emeritus Fellow of The English Association

Review:

'This is a book that should be on the shelves of all trainee teachers and all teacher-trainers across the country – including those responsible for NQTs: it is thorough, it offers a balanced perspective on so many of the key issues facing schools, and it provides a context in which a sensible, informed debate can be conducted.' - John Hickman, NATE Secondary Committee
