Product description

The book includes a range of activities that are designed to help teachers encourage their learners to develop responsibility for their own learning, starting from a low initial level of responsibility and adopting a systematic and gradual approach. The activities can be easily integrated into regular lessons, since each serves a clear linguistic purpose and promotes more general learner development. The activities are designed to develop a comprehensive range of skills and attitudes including developing learner strategies, monitoring learning processes, establishing self-evaluation, promoting motivation and developing co-operation.

Key features

  • Provides clearly outlined brief activities that require little preparation.
  • Covers both cognitive and affective dimensions of learner development.
  • Adopts a systematic and gradual approach which lends itself to integration with a variety of standard curricular objectives.
