About English Club
The English Club resources have been developed by Dr Robert McGregor to support Australian teachers of English. There are now over 200 English Club resources on the teaching of English in such areas as fiction, film, speaking and listening, writing and analysis of the use of language, grammar, literacy and assessment.
The English Club publications are notable for their active, collaborative and strategic approaches to teaching and learning in the field of English curriculum, and for their eminent practicality.
English teachers in all states of Australia have accessed The English Club resources for many years, recognising the practical and stimulating outcomes of an English classroom program that celebrates the interconnectedness of the four main modes of English: reading, writing, speaking and listening.
Dr McGregor taught English in Victorian secondary schools for 20 years. He served for many years as an Inspector and Senior Curriculum Officer (English P-12) in the Victorian Education Department. He was chairperson of the Victorian State Secondary English Committee for 10 years.
Dr McGregor is the author of Working Together, The Collaborative English Classroom (Nelson), co-author of Telling the Whole Story (ACER), and keynote speaker and workshop leader at numerous state and national English conferences. He also represented Victoria on several national working parties on various aspects of English curriculum.
