Allen and Unwin, 2020. ISBN: 9781760528928.
Highly recommended. Subtitled Effective approaches for the middle years this new book would appear to be the ultimate repository of everything needed in the teaching of English, i.e. English as a language, its critical appraisal, construction and deconstruction of texts, writing in English, and the analysis of, and responses to, many different kinds of texts. Its richness lies in the work of the 16 contributors, supported by two editors, and would assist any teacher working with the English language in terms of understanding the language in its multifaceted dimensions, building curriculum that would cover all possible aspects of the English language and the examples that would assist the classroom teacher. It is a stunning new work, a text book that is a serious consideration of English as language and communication. I would highly recommend it for any English teacher of both young and older students.
