Product description

This collection of original articles provides a state-of-the-art overview of key issues and approaches in contemporary language teaching. Written by internationally prominent researchers, educators, and emerging scholars, the chapters are grouped into five sections: rethinking our understanding of teaching, learner diversity and classroom learning, pedagogical approaches and practices, components of the curriculum, and media and materials. Each chapter covers key topics in teaching methodology such as reflective pedagogy, teaching large classes, outcomes-based language learning, speaking instruction, and technology in the classroom. Chapters assume no particular background knowledge and are written in an accessible style.

Key features

  • A companion to The Cambridge Guide to Second Language Teacher Education, this anthology provides a valuable resource for a course in methodology.

  • Each of the five sections starts with an introduction by the editors that links the chapters of the section for the reader.
