The literature toolbox. An English teacher’s handbook

Glen Pearsall

'The study of English introduces a student to other voices and other lives ... and in doing so, helps them find their own voice.’ Whether you are planning to study a new text, looking for a fresh approach to teach an old favourite or simply seeking strategies to provide more variety in your teaching, this is an invaluable guide for all English teachers. The literature toolbox features over fifty activities for exploring text. Easy to implement and rigorously road-tested in real classrooms, these practical strategies foster engagement, deepen inquiry and model fluent and sophisticated essay writing.
