Each chapter explains the background to current debates about teaching the subject and provides tasks, teaching ideas, and further reading to explore issues and ideas in relation to school experience.

Learning to Teach English in the Secondary School offers principles and practical examples of teaching and learning in the context of the end of the twentieth century when new notions of literacy compete with the demands of national assessment.

Pre-service and new teachers alike will appreciate this comprehensive, realistic view of what it is like to teach English language arts in grades 6 through 12. Through thoughtful integration of practical approaches to both curriculum and instruction, the book addresses the questions and concerns that those new to the profession encounter. The book stresses the constructivist approach and emphasizes reflective practice, and it asks readers to interact with the ideas presented-to affirm, question, and challenge those ideas. Included are numerous actual sample lessons plus classroom ideas with reflective questions that show readers how theory and research relate to practice. New Internet sources, summative graphic organizers of the material, and a flexible approach make this an ideal teaching tool for teachers of middle and secondary school students. Here's what makes this new fifth edition unique: Internet sources and the end of some chapters make the material relevant and give students additional resources for reflection. Reflective questions appear when appropriate in each chapter, prompting students to reflect on and absorb key content. Web sites particularly useful for English teachers are included. New chapter on media literacy (Chapter 9). Chapter 4, Oral Language, continues to build on the strong presentation of the previous edition, but now examines the use of improvisation. Chapter 12, Your Starting Role: Student Teaching and Beyond, takes readers through student teaching experiences, complete with actual material from former student teachers-emails, student teaching logs, and more. Included are scenarios and experiences that give readers opportunities to explore problems they might face in the classroom. Additions to the literature chapters include strategies for conducting a good class discussion on literature, criteria for selecting "good" books for adolescent readers, student units, Web sites for teachers, and reflection activities. These chapters also emphasize multicultural literature and young adult literature, without neglecting the classics.

English as a Language of Teaching and Learning for Community Secondary Schools in Tanzania

This book examines the challenges posed by English, a foreign language, as a language of teaching and learning for community secondary schools in Tanzania in terms of academic performance. The book probes the necessity for having two languages of instruction in the Tanzanian educational system. While Kiswahili, the native language, is predominantly understood by the majority of people, the discussion in this book indicates that most students in community secondary schools in Tanzania are incompetent in understanding, writing, listening, reading, and speaking English, a language they use in learning and doing their examinations, especially in the early stages of their secondary studies. The incompetence in the above-mentioned skills is mostly caused by their inability to cope with the abrupt transition in the languages of instruction from their pre-primary and primary school study [Kiswahili] to secondary school study [English]. Moreover, most teachers are unable to use the English language as a means to impart knowledge or facilitate learning to their students, leading them to code-switching and code-mixing. This book poses a challenge to countries whose students pass through a transition from one language of instruction to another in their educational systems, helping them to make appropriate decisions in regard to the appropriate language of teaching and learning.
