Title: The Lincom Guide to Materials Design in ELT
Edited By: Handoyo Puji Widodo
Lilia Savova
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Second Language Teaching 12
Description:

This much-needed volume offers focused approaches and frameworks of
designing or developing English materials in both EFL and ESL contexts.
Informed by current empirical, theoretical, and practical grounds, the text
treats key issues in English language teaching (ELT) materials design or
development and sample ELT materials in which the justifications for such
materials design or development are also discussed. Through the sample
teaching materials included in the text, the readers can see underlying
principles or frameworks of how those materials are designed or developed.
In other words, this volume is a user-friendly guide to materials design or
development for language teachers/practitioners in that theoretical or
empirical considerations are balanced with practical materials.

Thus, The LINCOM Guide to Materials Design in ELT is a valuable collection
not only for language teachers/practitioners, but also for language
materials writers and developers, graduate students majoring in TESOL,
pre-service teachers, and teacher educators and trainers who teach or
engage in ELT materials design or development on secondary school, college,
and university levels.
