Where English Allsorts and Spotlight on Literacy both offer practical classroom ideas, bringing together key EMC approaches to teaching English, What Matters in English Teaching has a different purpose. Addressed to teachers, it gives an informed, principled – sometimes unashamedly polemical – account of the most important issues in English teaching today, reflecting on and arguing for a particular vision of the subject – its pedagogies, practices and curriculum content.

Drawing and expanding on Barbara Bleiman’s well read and highly influential blogs, this collection addresses the key issues and concerns facing English teachers, including:

  • Versions of English – What Is It?
  • Thinking Big – Big Picture English
  • Group Work and Dialogic Learning
  • Teaching the Class Novel
  • What Do We Mean by Knowledge in English?
  • Vocabulary
  • Creativity and Criticality – Reading as a Writer, Writing as a Reader
  • What’s Important in Teaching Poetry
  • The Responsive English Teacher
Resource type: Paperback teacher book
