Title: New Approaches to Teaching Italian Language and Culture
Subtitle: Case Studies from an International Perspective
Edited By: Emanuele Occhipinti
Description:

New Approaches in Teaching Italian Language and Culture fills a major gap
in existing scholarship and textbooks devoted to the teaching of Italian
language and culture. A much-needed project in Italianistica, this
collection of essays offers case studies that provide a coherent and
organized overview of contemporary Italian pedagogy, incorporating the
expertise of scholars in the field of language methodology and language
acquisition from Italy and four major countries where the study of Italian
has a long tradition: Australia, Canada, Great Britain and the United States.

The twenty four essays, divided into six main parts, offer a tremendous
variety of up-to-date approaches to the teaching of Italian as a foreign
language and L2, ranging from theoretical to more practical, hands-on
strategies with essays on curricular innovations, technology, study abroad
programs, culture, film and song use as effective pedagogical tools. Each
case study introduces a systematic approach with an overview of theory,
activities and assessment suggestions, collection of research data and
syllabi. The book addresses the needs of instructors and teacher trainers,
putting in perspective different examples that can be used for more
effective teaching techniques according to the ACTFL guidelines and the
Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
