We’re often told that there are no quick fixes in teaching.
This isn’t entirely true…
And post-lockdown, we need speedy fixes more than ever to get our students of English back on track.
This book will show you how set texts can be reduced in a way that makes them richer.
It will reveal how seemingly obscure literary theory can help learners of all abilities achieve rapidly.
And it will help us prepare and revise for dreaded unseen texts, using the precious days we have with students in the most efficient way.
Emma Stott uses her experience as a teacher of early entry students and as a Research Lead to gather eight strategies that enable students to be better readers and critics of literature in general; not just of the same (outwardly!) threadbare set texts.
Speedy Reading promises to make you excited about those worn texts, the pleasures of unseen reading and even about the challenges to come.
