Every teacher of Literature should purchase this.. and it doesn’t matter whether you’re an NQT or decades established.. it will remind you WHY you chose to teach such a remarkable subject in the first place —it will refresh your teaching methods —and bring you immense joy and excitement to try the many tips. This has to be the best advice for teaching Literature bar none! Your students will thank you for life.‘

‘As an English teacher I am always on the lookout for ways to improve my practice. Having found Jennifer’s first book on the teaching of Literature very useful (buy that one too!) I pre ordered this one as soon as I could. It certainly didn’t disappoint. A call to arms to make sure we, as educators, are teaching our students how to use words. It has lots of helpful ideas in terms of lessons but more widely is reminds you of the power of language and how it is down to us to open up avenues for our students to Express themselves in writing. Cannot recommend enough.‘

‘I’m an experienced teacher but really wasn’t sure what metacognition is or looks like. Jennifer Webb’s book, like all her books, explains things in a clear and accessible way. I have found it incredibly helpful and interesting, and am thoroughly enjoying being consciously metacognitive in my teaching.’

‘Fantastic book that is practical and ready to use. It contains quizzes on the acts, themes and quotes formatted in a way that truly shows how knowledge quizzes should be carried out in order to achieve memory retrieval. If you teach/study Macbeth, for this price, buy it.‘

Unapologetically ambitious, unashamedly academic, a great read.
This book offers a powerful new way of teaching writing which merges several disparate styles and forms offering very practical tips on how to harness the qualities of each. An extremely useful book for anyone teaching the art of writing.

‘Utterly compelling, joyous, brimming with wit and sharp as a pin on the teaching of literature.’
