This book is for anyone who wants to provide their learners with rich and rewarding reading experiences. Drawing on current reading theory, the book promotes the teaching of reading in a theoretically sound way, moving beyond a comprehension-testing approach to reading. The practical part of the book provides a collection of accessible, generic activities so that teachers can support and develop learners’ reading skills and strategies. Its scope is wide-ranging, from promoting reading and developing fluency, to exploiting digital sources, using learner-generated texts and assessing reading. Further activities support teachers develop excellence in the teaching of reading through guided reflection and action research.
