TESL-EJ Special Issue: Incorporating Instructional pragmatics into ESL/EFL
Teacher Education

Date of Publication: September 2011

Guest Editor: Zohreh R. Eslami, Associate Professor, Texas A&M University
Email: zeslamitamu.edu

September 2011 issue of TESL-EJ will focus on scholarly research
perspectives and classroom-based practices related to Pragmatics and
Teacher Education.

Pragmatic competence is one of the vital components of communicative
competence that needs to be considered in L2 teacher education programs.
Unfortunately, available teacher education sources on ESL methodology and
assessment lack a focus on teaching the pragmatic aspects of language.
Pragmatics has been identified as an important component of language
teacher's knowledge base and appears to have been incorporated into some
teacher education programs in both ESL and EFL contexts. However, a
recent nationwide survey (Vasquez & Sharpless, 2009) has found that the
treatment of pragmatics in teacher training courses tends to center on theory
rather than practical applications. Specific preparation focused on practical
instructional pragmatics is needed for language teachers to be able to
effectively teach L2 pragmatics.

To address such needs, this issue welcomes submissions of high-quality
articles on topics relevant to the incorporation of instructional pragmatics into
L2 teacher education in ESL and EFL contexts.

The following are some suggested topics:
- Incorporating instructional pragmatics into L2 teacher education in ESL
contexts
- Incorporating instructional pragmatics into L2 teacher education in EFL
contexts
- In-service and pre-service teachers perceptions of pragmatics and
teacher education
- Native and nonnative English speaking teachers (NNESTs) perceptions
of pragmatics and teacher education
- Developments and challenges facing the integration of pragmatics into
L2 teacher education programs
- Teacher education models used in the integration of instructional
pragmatics into L2 teacher education courses
- Approaches and strategies used to incorporate instructional pragmatics
into L2 teacher education


Send original and unpublished manuscripts on the related topics along with
the author's name, affiliation, email address, and a 50-word biographical
statement to zeslamitamu.edu.
