'An excellent text, designed and written to enthuse teachers to adopt a dynamic approach to all aspects of the English curriculum. Teaching English Creatively looks at both the theories which underpin children's learning and suggests a myriad of practical approaches, which cannot fail to engage the most reluctant of learners. As ever, Teresa Cremin's enthusiasm for her subject is palpable on every page.'
