The Dynamics of the Language Classroom
Traditionally, the classroom has been seen as a place where language learning takes place in a linear manner on a fairly predictable input-output model. Recent research, however, has portrayed the classroom as a complex environment which is influenced by a wide range of attitudinal and contextual factors. The Dynamics of the Language Classroom examines the various conceptions of language, learning, and of the classroom, which influence participants' attitudes and actions. The interaction between methodology and context and the role of local cultures of learning is also examined. It concludes with recommendations as to how language educators may work constructively with the complex dynamics of classroom teaching and learning.
