New Ways in Teaching English at the Secondary Level. New Ways in TESOL Series II: Innovative Classroom Techniques.
Short, Deborah J., Ed.
The book offers an international collection of best practices that address the particular interests and demands of English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) and English-as-a-Foreign-Language (EFL) teaching at the secondary school level. It includes instructional activities that are created by ESL and EFL teachers and are classroom-tested and student-approved. The activities address all language skills and features of language learning, and involve a range of approaches and techniques, including authentic literature, academic content, multimedia use, peer cooperation, and career information. The book is divided into several main sections: icebreakers to start the school year; integrated language development activities; connections with content areas; multimedia infusion; cooperative projects; and assessment, review, and language games. Each section contains a variety of activities in a format that specifies appropriate instructional level(s), aims, the activity type (e.g., practice, application, review), required class time, preparation time, necessary or potential resources, procedures, caveats and options, references and further reading when appropriate, and a note on the contributor.
