A GLOBAL CONTEXT A Reader
	
"This volume fills a gap that has been missing in the
literature used in many TESOL/TEFL courses. The uniqueness
of this collection of papers is not just the presentation
of English in different cultural and social contexts but
also in the foregrounding of language as an analytical tool
in order to examine language itself."
- Joseph A. Foley, Southeast Asia Ministers of Education
Organisation, Regional Language Centre, Singapore
		
"This Reader offers key texts from many of the most
interesting authors who consider teaching English to be part
of a social and political process, not merely a
psycholinguistic one."
- Euan Reid, Institute of Education, University of London
	
Analysing English in a Global Context provides an overview
of the rapid growth and spread of English in its many
varieties worldwide. The Reader foregrounds some of the most
challenging questions for future developments in English
language teaching worldwide.
Topics include:
* the internationalization of English
* the status of the non-native English teacher
* the recognition of language variation
* the debate on standard versus non-standard varieties.

Message 2: TESOL: Innovation in English Language Teaching, A Reader; David Hall and Ann Hewings, editors

Subject: TESOL: Innovation in English Language Teaching, A Reader; David Hall and Ann Hewings, editors

		
David Hall, Macquarie University, Australia, and Ann Hewings,
UK, Open University, Editors, INNOVATION IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE
TEACHING A Reader

"This volume brings to the fore diverse, fundamental issues
about the processes snf politics of curriculum change and
improvement, new technologies, and concepts of language use,
communication, and instruction vital to guiding the
organization and practices of teaching English
internationally."
- Alister Cumming, University of Toronto

Innovation in English Language Teaching provides both
theoretical perspectives and the practical tools for
analyzing and understanding how ELT classroom curriculums
can be analyzed, developed, and evaluated. The articles in
this Reader place curriculum change in a philosophical
framework but also explore the political and institutional
considerations. A series of case studies are provided that
highlight the role of the teacher in curriculum innovation
and the various processes of planning and implementation.
In the final section, the texts investigate the crucial
question of how to evaluate changes to the curriculum and
syllabus. Contributors include Michael P. Breen, Kimberly
Brown, Christopher N. Candlin, David R. Carless, Ronald
Carter, Guy Cook, Susan Feez, Kevin Germaine, Kathleen
Graves, David R. Hall, Ann Hewings, Martin Hewings, Adrian
Holliday, Gary M. Jones, Calrice Lamb, Joan Lesikin, Defeng

Message 3: TESOL: English Language Teaching in Its social Context, A Reader; Christopher N. Candlin and Neil Mercer, editors

Date: Tue, 24 Apr 2001 11:59:28 -0400
From: Sean Hanrahan <seanrahanhotmail.com>
Subject: TESOL: English Language Teaching in Its social Context, A Reader; Christopher N. Candlin and Neil Mercer, editors

Christopher N. Candlin, City University of Hong Kong, and
Neil Mercer, Open University, UK, Editors, ENGLISH LANGUAGE
TEACHING IN ITS SOCIAL CONTEXT A Reader
		
"This volume links the teaching of English to the development
of autonomous individuals, who prize debate, negation, and
interaction, and who will ultimately be able to build global
communities of like-minded English speakers around the world.
Readers will find this collection of excellent papers some
of the classic milestones of th4e field of ELT."
- Claire Kramsch, University of California, Berkeley
			
"Candlin and Mercer's Reader provides key insights into
contemporary knowledge of second language learning, the
exploration of this knowledge in classroom action, and
subsequent assessment and analysis. By emphasising the
social context of these three processes, and the relationship
between them, the book provides a rewarding introduction to
the interaction between theory, research, and professional
practice which lies at the heart of applied linguistics."
- Guy Cook, University of Reading, UK
		
English Language Teaching in its Social Context offers
sociolinguistic, ethnographic, and social-psychological
perspectives on TESOL teaching and learning. In addition,
it introduces the student to the relevant literature on
second language acquisition. The articles have been chosen
to present four major principles of English language
teaching:
* focusing on the roles played by teachers and learners
recognizing the individuality of language learners
* supporting teachers in the provision of active guidance
for students' learning
* examining both positive and negative patterns of
interaction between learners and teachers.
