It has been written by teachers working within the present context, but who look at the lessons of the past as well as hopes for the future. Each chapter begins with a question raised by teachers when asked at in-service workshops about the issues which concerned them most. The chapters cover most of the more significant aspects of English within the National Curriculum and vary from John Johnsons survey of practical ways to raise the standard of oracy to Nick Peims suggestions for coping with Key Stage 4 which leads him to a radical questioning of the whole nature of English as a curriculum subject.
