Engaging Language Learners in Contemporary Classrooms draws on extensive theoretical knowledge to examine engagement from a wide range of perspectives, going beyond the study of motivation to explore how teachers can ensure learners remain engaged in the face of the distractions of 21st century life. Topics covered include the contexts of learner engagement, the facilitative learner mindset, teacher–student rapport, positive classroom dynamics and culture, initiating engagement with learning tasks and sustaining engagement on learning tasks..

  • Each chapter outlines a series of key principles, followed by actions that teachers can take to implement them in the classroom.
  • Reflection tasks encourage teachers to consider the content in relation to their own teaching practice.
  • Further reading lists support teachers to find out more about the topics covered.
