Book Information


Title: Understanding Language Teaching
Subtitle: From Method to Postmethod
Written By: B. Kumaravadivelu

This book traces the historical development of major language teaching
methods in terms of theoretical principles and classroom procedures, and
provides a critical evaluation of each. Drawing from seminal, foundational
texts and from critical commentaries made by various scholars,
Kumaravadivelu examines the profession's current transition from method to
postmethod and, in the process, elucidates the relationship between theory,
research, and practice. The chief objective is to help readers see the
pattern that connects language, learning, teaching methods, and postmethod

"Understanding Language Teaching: From Method to Postmethod" is intended
for an international audience of teacher educators, practicing teachers and
graduate students, researchers, curriculum planners, and materials
designers in the field of second and foreign language teaching.
