Teaching English magazine

The Autumn 2007 edition of Teaching English (we featured in the spring edition) is now out from the English Support Service, and is again an attractively produced publication with lots of interesting features (the cover is Henry Raeburn's 'Portrait of the Reverend Robert Walker Skating'). Click below on the pages for a larger view, and again to zoom.

Among the features are :
  • Winners from the Write a Poem competition for schools,
  • An interview by Kevin McDermott with poet Julie O'Callaghan,
  • A guide to the 2009 Leaving Certificate comparative books, including new texts by John Banville (Kepler), Julian Barnes (Arthur & George), Beckett (Waiting for Godot), Eleni Gage (North of Ithaka), Martin McDonagh (The Lonesome West), Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (Purple Hibiscus) and Asne Seierstad (The Bookseller of Kabul),
  • An interview with Athboy Community School teacher Tony Magner on teaching the comparative module,
  • and several articles on film - Alicia McGivern of the IFI, Sean Conlon on teaching film and Vinny Murphy on the Moving Image project.
