For so long, I’ve seen this referred to as a kind of Bible for teachers of reading. And while I won’t accord it that status, it was useful for a few key concepts (the notion of “leaving tracks”), reminders and lessons. The ratio of theory to lessons is too skewed toward the latter, in my opinion. So I admit I skimmed some of the lessons. But I’ve flagged some things I’d like to try and need to remember. And there is, regrettably and necessarily , a section on Test Reading that merits some attention.

But first I’ve got to get them to read!!!

Can you recommend any books about teaching (English)?
