Elizabeth Grugeon, Lorraine Hubbard, Carol Smith and Lyn Dawes have produced a text that looks at the ways in which teachers can develop children’s abilities in speaking and listening, as required by the National Curriculum. The authors discuss the links between language and learning, offer case studies and suggestions for classroom practice. and provide stimulating activities to help pupils to become more articulate, coherent and effective in standard English.
This book is a suitable text for students taking initial teacher training courses at the primary level. It could also be a useful handbook for all primary teachers.
