This is a book about success. A book about what effective learners do to succeed in school and how you can help all of your students achieve similar results. It's based upon a five-year study in which Jim Burke investigated the essential skills and abilities effective learners use to succeed in academic classes. His results are so groundbreaking, so powerful that they will forever change the way you view learning. Academic success involves much more than the obvious knowledge of reading, writing, and arithmetic. Effective students recognize what matters in school, what's worth paying attention to, how much effort is appropriate.

Success in English Teaching focuses especially on teaching at secondary-school level and above. The book is also for teacher-trainers running both pre-service and in-service courses. What does the book contain? The twelve chapters which form the main body of the book cover every major aspect of teaching English. Chapters 1 to 7 focus on actual classroom teaching. They establish essential theoretical principles, and present a wide and coherent range of practical teaching ideas which are designed to be effective and acceptable in the working contexts of most teachers.

How can we make the tools and habits of academic literacy available to every student? Jim Burke answered this question by creating ACCESS, a program for struggling students he began five years ago at Burlingame High School-a program where seventy percent of incoming ninth graders go on to college. In ACCESSing School, Burke examines academic success initiatives around the country, identifying their key components, then detailing how their practices apply to ACCESS so that you can adapt its principles to meet your school's unique needs.

ACCESSing School offers a reading-intensive alternative to ineffective remedial courses. It synthesizes the findings of recent studies with both the insight Jim has gleaned from teaching ACCESS classes and the "Four Cs of Academic Success" he identified in School Smarts. ACCESSing School offers a model for all schools, complete with: specific, practical elements of Jim's ACCESS program the actual documents he and his district use to select students for ACCESS the research that supports its principles and practices the ways in which ACCESS addresses specific challenges such as gender, reading problems, and chronic academic failure inspiring stories of the program's many successes and an honest examination of its challenges. How can you help every student learn to "do school?" By providing an opportunity for them to acquire the habits, motivation, and language they need in a curriculum that is structured and experiential, guided but flexible, personally meaningful but academically effective. How do you take the first step? By reading ACCESSing School, and discovering more about the ideas and practices that can help your students succeed both in school and after graduation.
