Reading and teaching English literature
how to bridge the gaps between teacher education and the English classroom
Reader-response theories and research are central in Reading and Teaching English Literature. Firstly, the book presents a discussion of important reader-response theorists, and then takes up concepts used in the study of literature. Reading and Teaching English Literature exemplifies various genres used in the classroom through action research and practical teaching programmes.
This book will be a valuable resource both for students of English and for practising teachers in primary and lower secondary school.
