Abstract

In this review of How to be a Brilliant English Teacher by Trevor Wright, Linda Harris describes an invaluable text for all English teachers who wish to hone their practice. It is very accessible, written in a light, at times entertaining, style and does what it claims: it differentiates between good and brilliant teaching. It tackles a range of issues from planning and evaluating to teaching Shakespeare, poetry, drama and longer texts. Wright deals with the big, important issues in English teaching but also covers the little things, providing sensible and practical advice such as who should read which parts of the text and why.
