This book addresses practical teaching matters, including lesson planning, motivation, classroom management, as well as moral and political issues.
This is a valuable source book for both teacher educators and classroom teachers. It covers a wide range of key areas, including lesson planning, classroom management, and motivation. It also delves into the moral and political dimensions of teaching. Discussion of these areas is supported by extensive quotes from real teachers and is well grounded in academic theory. The treatment is sufficiently challenging to interest the experienced teacher, but covers matters of basic practice of concern to the beginner. This is an invaluable tool for both in-service teachers and those wishing to further their professional development.
Raises important philosophical and ethical issues not usually addressed in handbooks.
Goes well beyond the literature of L2 education, providing broad background for the new teacher.
The practicum is a core component of most graduate TESOL programs worldwide.
