Product description

Supported by insights from research, this accessible book promotes the teaching of reading in a theoretically sound way, moving beyond a comprehension-testing approach. The practical part of the book provides a collection of accessible, generic activities to support and develop learners' reading skills and strategies. Its scope is wide-ranging, from promoting reading and developing fluency, to exploiting literary texts and digital sources, using learner-generated texts, developing critical reading skills and assessing reading.

Key features

  • Activities are underpinned by theory, promoting a coherent view of reading and how learners can become better readers.
  • Activities are generalisable and suitable for a wide variety of ages and teaching contexts, including ESP and EAP.
  • Further activities support you to develop excellence in the teaching of reading through guided reflection and action research.
