This book provides a unique description of teacher-pupil interaction during the Literacy Hour in good schools. It is based on detailed observations in inner-city primary schools that were recognised as effective and improving. The analysis is informed by contemporary research into the development and teaching of early literacy. The book provides practice-based examples of how teachers and schools might adapt their delivery for literacy as they move to greater creativity in their teaching of reading and writing. The analysis begins within the classrooms of three expert Key Stage 1 teachers and broadens out in to the wider setting of the schools and their senior management teams. An important theme running throughout the book is how the three teachers were able to make exceptional provision for their pupils, who were largely second language speakers and from socio-economically disadvantaged groups. The teachers’ successful practice grew from their understanding of both early literacy development and planning for individual need. The information in this book will enable student teachers, recently qualified teachers, and teachers interested in enhancing their literacy teaching to develop their practice in a similarly successful way.

By following these suggestions, which are organized around four strands – meaning-focused input, meaning-focused output, language-focused learning, and fluency development – teachers will be able to design and present a balanced program for their students. Teaching ESL/EFL Reading and Writing, and its companion text, Teaching ESL/EFL Listening and Speaking, are similar in format and the kinds of topics covered, but do not need to be used together. Drawing on research and theory in applied linguistics, their focus is strongly hands-on, featuring easily applied principles, a large number of useful teaching techniques, and guidelines for testing and monitoring, All Certificate, Diploma, Masters and Doctoral courses for teachers of English as a second or foreign language include a teaching methods component. The texts are designed for and have been field tested in such programs.
