Title: Understanding the Language Classroom
Edited By: Simon Gieve
Inés K Miller
Description:

The starting point for this collection is a chapter by Dick Allwright on
the language learning and teaching classroom experience entitled 'Six
Promising Directions in Applied Linguistics'. The other distinguished
contributors respond to this discussion with their own interpretations and
from their own experience. The collection problematizes prescription,
efficiency, and technical solutions as orientations to classroom language
learning. Complexity and idiosyncrasy, on the other hand, are recognized as
central concepts in a move towards centralizing teachers' and learners' own
understanding of 'classroom life', in the contexts of language learning,
adult literacy education and language teacher education.
