Earl Stevick's Influence on Language Teaching
This volume explores the importance of meaningful action for language teaching and learning, paying tribute to the enduring influence of Earl Stevick.
With contributions from 19 ELT authors and influential academics, Meaningful Action draws upon and acknowledges the huge influence of Earl Stevick on language teaching. Stevick's work on 'meaningful action' explored how learners can engage with activities that appeal to sensory and cognitive processes, ensuring that meaning is constructed by the learner's internal characteristics, and by their relationship with other learners and the teacher. This edited volume focuses on meaningful action in three domains: learner internal factors and relationships between the people involved in the learning process; classroom activity; and diverse frameworks supporting language learning.
- Places aspects of language teaching practice and research in the context of Earl Stevick’s influence.
- Brings together experts in the field of applied linguistics and language teaching to explore the theme of meaningful action in a variety of ways.
- Illustrates how teaching and researching, practice and theory, can co-construct one another in many fascinating narratives.
