    `Provides background knowledge and ideas as well as case studies of teachers, subject leaders and a school, all designed to build your knowledge of the different aspects of the role and enable you to reflect on your school and how you might lead the teaching of English in it...I have really enjoyed reading Lisa Baldwin's book.' - Tony Martin, Past President United Kingdom Literacy Association

    "An essential read for anyone beginning their journey as an English/Literacy leader. Not only do the authors share a wide range of current and seminal research, they encourage practitioners to reflect on their own professional identity as an English leader. By considering not just the `what' to do, but the `how' and `why', they guide teachers to consider actions they can take to develop high quality English practice in their schools in a meaningful and sustainable way. This is definitely a book that belongs on my classroom bookcase - it's too useful to keep at home!" - Rebecca Barnard, Literary Leader, Churchfield Church School, Bath and Wells Multi Academy Trust

    Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
