This uniquely structured and practical resource book will
empower teachers new to the study of language to feel confident
about leading a stimulating and successful course. Covering all
areas of linguistic investigation across the different exam board
specifications, this accessible text rooted in theoretical
perspectives is underpinned by years of teaching experience and is
rich with practical classroom activities.
Each of the sections included in this book is either an examined
area of study from the AS and A2 specifications or deals with the
supporting frameworks of linguistic analysis, and is helpfully
split into two parts:
- An overview of how to teach that area of study, and a
discussion of the appropriate level of knowledge that students will
- Individual lesson ideas and plans, with resources provided
Teaching English Language 16 - 19 opens with a brief
introductory section that outlines the reasoning behind taking an
investigative approach to the study of language. A sequence of
suggested lesson ideas for the opening lessons of a typical course,
amounting to some eight lessons with homework research and
discussion preparation tasks, is also included.
Students on initial teacher education courses, as well as
practising teachers undertaking the teaching of language for the
first time, will welcome this highly practical resource.
