Enriching ESOL Pedagogy: Readings and Activities for Engagement,
Reflection, and Inquiry is a collection of thought-provoking articles and
activities designed to engage practicing and prospective ESOL teachers in
an ongoing process of reflecting on, critically examining, and
investigating theory and practice. Its twofold purpose is to provide a
theoretical perspective and to offer ways for making the teaching of
English to speakers of other languages (ESOL) meaningful for both teachers
and learners. Underlying the activities and the readings themselves is the
assumption that teachers need to play a role in exploring, shaping, and
theorizing the work they do.

The readings included represent a range of genres. They are informed by a
common philosophical perspective about language acquisition and treat
language teaching and learning holistically. The book is organized into
five integrated units that:
* raise questions about conventional notions of methods;
* take into account the complicated nature of real classrooms;
* provide theoretical principles for teaching that promotes language
* include rich descriptions of actual classroom experiences; and
* question assumptions about language and literacy.

Each set of readings begin with a "Before Reading" section and is followed
by "Reflecting on the Readings," "Reading for Further Reflection," and
"Suggested Projects for Inquiry" sections.

This volume is a valuable resource for practicing and prospective teachers
in the field of TESOL who work with diverse student populations--at all
levels--in both mainstream and ESL/bilingual settings.
