To enable us to provide a better service to you both now and in the future, we are planning to upgrade our order management system. This upgrade will begin on May 14th and continue until mid-May. During this period you will be unable to order through our website. We recommend that you purchase through a local bookseller.
This book is for anyone who wants to provide their learners with rich and rewarding reading experiences. Drawing on current reading theory, the book promotes the teaching of reading in a theoretically sound way, moving beyond a comprehension-testing approach to reading. The practical part of the book provides a collection of accessible, generic activities so that teachers can support and develop learners' reading skills and strategies. Its scope is wide-ranging, from promoting reading and developing fluency, to exploiting digital sources, using learner-generated texts and assessing reading. Further activities support teachers develop excellence in the teaching of reading through guided reflection and action research.
