Learner-Centered Teaching: The Core of Effective Practices for Adolescent English Language Learners
Cloud, Nancy; Lakin, Judah; Leininger, Erin
TESOL Journal, v2 n2 p132-155 Jun 2011
In this piece, a teacher educator and two secondary teachers describe how they implemented the Learners' Lives as Curriculum model (Weinstein, 2004) with adolescent English language learners using a unit from a pilot secondary curriculum titled Lives Unfolding (Weinstein & Cloud, 2007). They discuss the development and adaptation of the Names unit and how their work around this theme transformed their classrooms into participatory communities of successful and highly motivated English learners. (Contains 1 table.)
