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.
