Methods, Resources, and Assessment. Australian Language Levels Guidelines. Book 3.
Scarino, Angela; And Others
The Australian Language Levels (ALL) Project offers a coherent model for elementary and secondary language curriculum design. Book 3 of the four-volume series focuses on teaching methods, appropriate instructional resources, and student evaluation and provides advice for teachers in each of these areas. The section on methods discusses the learner-centered approach, the teaching implications of the eight principles of language learning outlined in Book 1, accommodating learner differences through individualized and group activities, and seven possible approaches to lesson organization. The section on resources begins by outlining criteria for selecting, adapting, and creating resources and then discusses resources that provide communicative data in the target language, resources and activities promoting communicative use of the target language, resources for whole-class, group, and individual learning, textbooks as resources, and sequencing or leveling of resources. The assessment section establishes a philosophical context for developing assessment procedures and then examines the purposes and content of assessment, methods, development of assessment activities and exercises, criteria for judging performance in activities, and links with Australian standardized tests at the secondary level. Contains more than 150 references. (MSE)
