Format: Paperback
Since 1998, trainee teachers have "suffered" a big increase in demands on their subject knowledge in maths, English and science. For English this means grammar, vocabulary and linguistics that many were never taught at school - leading to headaches and nightmares! In this book, Ian Eyres tackles every issue of the teacher training curriculum for English making it accessible and easy to understand. As well as this he offers reflection pieces to check your own understanding and examples of activities one can do with children. With English exams looming round the corner for my PGCE, this book really has been a lifesaver. Wholeheartedly recommended.

I read this in preparation for a PGCE. I've not unfamiliar with the subject, but have often got bogged down in the more technical terms, having not covered these during my own education. This is the best book on this subject I've come across. Starting from the implicit knowledge we already possess through being competent users of our language, it shows how and why some of the more difficult constructions, for example, arise, rather than concentrating wholly on definitions. As a result, I felt I was gaining a better 'feel' for these terms, for the first time. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
This book was badly organised and structured. It has very little subject knowledge. I have found no use for this book on my Primary Education Degree course.
