Synopsis

Teaching Media in the English Curriculum by Andrew Hart, Alun Hicks

Despite worldwide enthusiasm and enhanced funding, learning English is still a problem area for many secondary schools and students - comprehension, communication, spelling and knowledge about language frequently fall short of even modest targets. Yet the very same students watch, hear, understand and avidly discuss a constant output of television, radio and film. Why doesn't their English usage respond more fully?The answer is that it can if teachers make full use of it. This thorough, school-based British research shows that they can. It illustrates how they have done it, how other teachers can follow the same strategies and how to evaluate their results. It is essential reading for all secondary school teachers.
