Italian/Italiano. Resource Guides for Teachers.
This resource guide, intended for current prospective teachers of Italian, is designed as a source of information and inspiration for Italian instructors at all educational levels. The first of the guide's 11 chapters provides a brief general introduction to this book. Chapter 2 looks at the status of and rationale for Italian language instruction in the United Kingdom. Next, topics in instructional management are addressed, including identification of learner needs, using available resources, and evaluating instructional materials. Filling in the gaps in instructional materials by creating or adapting existing materials is the subject of chapter 4, while the next three chapters provide, respectively, practical advice for classroom methodology; ideas for incorporating Italian culture into the classroom environment, and guidelines for the teacher in the arrangement of visits and travel. Chapters 8 and 9 focus on the objectives of student assessment and on standardized tests. Chapters 10 and 11 list resources for further information on teacher training, the language teaching profession, and professional development. (MSE)
