Clarke, David F.
ELT Journal, v43 n2 p133-41 Apr 1989
Describes five principles that guide learner involvement in English-as-a-foreign-language materials adaptation, including: (1) learner commitment; (2) learner as collaborator; (3) learner as problem solver; (4) learner as knower; and (5) learner as evaluator and assessor. Specific examples of how learners might productively engage in adapting or constructing materials are discussed. (Author/CB)
