Paradigm Shift: Understanding and Implementing Change in Second Language Education.
Jacobs, George M.; Farrell, Thomas
TESL-EJ, v5 n1 Apr 2001
Describes eight changes that fit the paradigm shift in second language education toward what is often called communicative language teaching: learner autonomy, cooperative learning, curricular integration, focus on meaning, diversity, thinking skills, alternative assessment, and teachers as co-learners. The paradigm shift is examined as an element of larger shifts from positivism to post-positivism and behaviorism to cognitivism. (Author)
