Title: Critical Reading in Language Education
Written By: Catherine Wallace

'This text is a very important work in the exploration of ESL teaching... with exciting discussion, well-grounded in theoretical positions and paradigms... very accessible to its audience.'
Dr Pat Smith, University of Ballarat, Australia

Addressed to researchers in Applied Linguistics, and to professional teachers working in, or studying teaching and learning processes in, multilingual classrooms, Critical Reading in Language Education offers a distinctive contribution to the question of how foreign language learners can be helped to acquire effective literacy in English. At the heart of the book is first-hand classroom research by the author as both teacher and researcher, demonstrating an innovative research methodology and empirical evidence to support a critical reading pedagogy.
