Teaching Primary English



December 2011 | 224 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Shortlisted for the UKLA Academic Book Award 2013!

Literacy empowers learning across the whole curriculum and language is at the centre of all learning in primary education.

Aware of current curriculum developments and drawing from the latest research Teaching Primary English encourages teacher education students to develop a deeper understanding of the essential issues involved in teaching English in order to approach a career in the primary classroom with the confidence and knowledge required to succeed.

Taking a fresh approach to the main elements of teaching primary English, Jackie Brien strikes an engaging balance between the practical requirements of English teaching and encouraging informed reflection on key aspects of primary literacy.

This is essential reading for everyone studying primary English on primary initial teacher education courses including undergraduate (BEd, BA with QTS), postgraduate (PGCE, SCITT), and employment-based routes into teaching.

Jackie Brien is Curriculum Leader for English, Communication, Language and Literacy at the University of Chester.
