Teachers as Course Developers.
Graves, Kathleen, Ed.
The collection of essays on teachers as course developers is designed to help teachers understand how to develop courses or modify existing ones using their own experience and the experiences and theories of others. It attempts to capture this process through the stories of six teachers who have developed courses. Each narrative focuses on a specific aspect of course development. Articles include: "Teachers as Course Developers" (Kathleen Graves); "A Framework of Course Development Processes" (Kathleen Graves); "Designing Workplace ESOL Courses for Chinese Health-Care Workers at a Boston Nursing Home" (Johan Uvin); "Designing a Seventh-Grade Social Studies Course for ESL Students at an International School" (Pat Fisher); "Designing an EAP Course for Postgraduate Students in Ecuador" (Maria del Carmen Blyth); "Designing a Writing Component for Teen Courses at a Brazilian Language Institute" (Maria Estela Pinheiro Franco); "Planning an Advanced Listening Comprehension Elective for Japanese College Students" (Barbara Fujiwara); and "A Curriculum Framework for Corporate Language Programs" (Laura Hull). A list of further readings is included and contents are indexed. (MSE)
