What are the needs of secondary school students and teachers in the present decade and how can they be met? What is it that makes English a unique experience on the school curriculum? How should the English curriculum be planned? Should English be a separate subject on the secondary timetable or should it be integrated with other subjects? How can curricular continuity be built between a secondary school and its partner primary schools? How should a secondary English room be organized to the students' best advantage? How can you help students read with independence, develop their speaking and listening skills, gain the confidence to learn on their own for long periods of time, become aesthetically and emotionally more mature? In answering questions of this sort the author of "teaching secondary English" offers a view of English that is underpinned by an explicit philosophy and practical illustrations and examples.
