Drawing from the latest research, Teaching Primary English encourages education students to develop a deeper understanding of the essential issues involved in teaching English in order to approach a career in the elementary classroom with the confidence and knowledge required to succeed. Jackie Brien strikes an engaging balance between the practical requirements of English teaching and encouraging informed reflection on key aspects of literacy.
