Learner-Centered Language Teaching: Methods and Materials.
Papalia, Anthony
Foreign language teaching is a process which involves interaction, communication, personal contact, and a deep understanding of the student. Teachers must develop competencies in working with different kinds of learners if effective instruction is to materialize. This book identifies the competencies that language teachers should possess and provides a guide for developing them. Part one of this book describes the role of foreign language studies in secondary schools, assists in discovering students' learning styles, and develops a student-centered design for organizing classroom instruction. Part two aids teachers in developing a learner-centered environment by presenting different approaches to learning, successful techniques for teaching the basic skills, grammar and culture, and effective techniques of evaluation. Part three introduces the prospective teacher to classroom discipline, role of homework, use of media, role of grading, evaluation of the learning-teaching process, assessment of learning environments, resources and materials of practical use to foreign language teachers.
