Abstract:
			
This book recommends that language teachers incorporate an awareness
of discourse and pragmatics in their teaching if they truly wish to
implement a communicative approach in their classrooms. After two
introductory chapters on discourse and pragmatics, the authors show
how a discourse perspective can enhance the teaching of traditional
areas of linguistic knowledge (pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary)
and the teaching of language processing skills (listening, reading,
writing, and speaking). This awareness of discourse is then carried
over to curriculum development, assessment, and classroom
research. With discussion questions and activities at the end of each
chapter, this book can be used in methods courses or in-service
training programs.

Abstract:
			
Critical pedagogies are instructional approaches and materials that
are aimed at transforming existing social relations in the interest of
greater equity in schools and communities. Interest in this area is
rapidly gaining momentum. This important new volume applies the
critical pedagogical approach to the area of language learning, and in
so doing, it addresses such topics as critical multiculturalism,
gender and language learning, and popular culture. Committed to
language education that contributes to social justice - and the
political, economic, and sociocultural changes such justice requires -
the contributors explore the meaning of creating equitable and
critical instructional practices, exploring diverse representations of
knowledge; they also make recommendations for further research in this
area, and for critical testing practices and teacher
education. Graduate students and researchers in TESOL, applied
linguistics, and education will find this volume a thought-provoking
and comprehensive presentation of theory and practice in this
important new area of scholarship.
