Teaching and Learning of English in Secondary Schools

A Zambian Case Study in Improving Quality

image of Teaching and Learning of English in Secondary Schools

By exploring the ways that teachers and pupils can help to improve classroom practices this book shows how education planners and practitioners can effect improvements in schools even in situations of very scarce resources.

Although the book focuses on Zambia, the experiences presented here will be of relevance to head teachers, school inspectors, teacher trainers and education ministry officials in all developing countries who are working to improve English language teaching and learning.




Improving the quality of teaching at secondary school level has been and continues to be a major concern for public sector education authorities, teacher educators and trainers, and teachers’ professional organisations, as well as for secondary teachers themselves. The need to improve the professional training and performance of teachers in their subject areas is widely accepted. We know, for example, that the demands of today’s secondary education call for teachers who are highly skilled and grounded in knowledge, values and effective teaching strategies.
