Communication in the Classroom: Applications and Methods for a Communicative Approach.
Johnson, Keith, Ed.; Morrow, Keith, Ed.
This book aims to help the practicing language teacher apply theories of communicative language teaching in classroom situations. The text is divided into two main parts, preceded by an introductory paper which sketches some of the background to communicative language teaching and attempts definitions of crucial terms. The first part of the book deals with syllabus and course design and describes ways of dealing with problems posed by the production of communicative materials for adult beginners, primary children, students who have previously learned the forms of the language but not communicative aspects, and general students. The second part on methodology deals with principles, procedures, and techniques of communicative language teaching. It discusses (1) the skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing; (2) visuals; (3) role-play and simulations; (4) drama and games; and (5) problem solving. (AMH)
