Teaching English Language Worldwide

1) Analysing English in a Global Context: A Reader Edited by Anne
 Burns, Macquarie University, Australia and Caroline Coffin, Open
 University, UK

Analysing English in a Global Context offers you a global perspective
on the changing uses and forms of English and helps you to develop the
skills needed to analyse these forms. Together with its companion
volumes, it presents English language teaching in a variety of
specific institutional, geographic, and cultural contexts. Analysing
English in a Global Context addresses the key contemporary issues in
English language teaching and applied linguistics. The articles - a
range of classic and specially commissioned pieces - have been
carefully chosen and edited and together they provide an overview of
the rapid growth and spread of English in its many varieties
worldwide. A general introduction outlines the approach, organisation,
and different perspectives of the collection.

Up-to-date and fully international, the Reader foregrounds some of the
most challenging questions for future developments in English language
teaching worldwide. Topics include : the internationalisation of
English; the status of the non-native English teacher; the recognition
of language variation; the debate on standard versus non-standard

2) English Language Teaching in its Social Context: A Reader Edited by
 Christopher N. Candlin, City University of Hong Kong and Neil Mercer,
 Open University, UK

English Language Teaching in its Social Context offers the reader
sociolinguistic, ethnographic, and social-psychological perspectives
on TESOL teaching and learning. In addition to this, it introduces
the student to the relevant literature on second language
acquisition. Together with its companion volumes, English Language
Teaching in its Social Context presents English language teaching in a
variety of specific institutional, geographic and cultural contexts.
The articles included have been carefully chosen to present four major
principles of English language teaching: * the roles played by
teachers and learners * the individuality of language learners * the
provision of active guidance for students' learning * the positive and
negative patterns of interaction between learners and teachers. This
Reader offers people unfamiliar with research in this field an overall
impression of English language teaching issues while allowing the more
experienced reader the opportunity to relate his or her own
experiences to the theories presented.

tools for analysing and understanding how ELT classroom curricula can
be analysed, developed and evaluated.

The specially commissioned and classic texts included in this book
place curriculum change in a philosophical framework but also explores
the political and institutional considerations. A series of case
studies are provided which highlight both the role of the teacher in
curriculum innovation and the various processes of planning and
implementation. In the final section, the texts deal with the crucial
question of how to evaluate changes to the curriculum and the
