Overview

Designed for pre-service teachers and teachers new to the field of ELT, What English Teachers Need to Know Volumes I, II, and III are companion textbooks organized around the key question: What do teachers need to know and be able to do in order for their students to learn English? In the Second Edition of Volume I, Murray and Christison return to this essential question and call attention to emerging trends and challenges affecting the contemporary classroom. Addressing new skills and strategies that EFL teachers require to meet the needs of their shifting student populations who are impacted by changing demographics, digital environments, and globalization, this book, which is grounded in current research, offers a strong emphasis on practical applications for classroom teaching. This updated and expanded Second Edition features: a new chapter on technology in TESOL new and updated classroom examples throughout discussions of how teachers can prepare for contemporary challenges, such as population mobility and globalization The comprehensive texts work for teachers across different contexts-where English is the dominant language, an official language, or a foreign language; for different levels-elementary/primary, secondary, university, or adult education; and for different learning purposes-general English, workplace English, English for academic purposes, or English for specific purposes.

Reviews

This text provides a remarkably broad overview of SLA theory, practice, and professionalism. It is an ideal text for preparing new TESOL professionals in intensive teacher development programs and is welcome as a resource in longer-term programs as well. The concepts are presented clearly, the language is accessible, and the tasks are particularly relevant. - Mary Benedetti, University of Cincinnati, USA Murray and Christison are able to bring a variety of ESL contexts to pre-service teachers using vignettes, discussion, sample data, and description of diverse types of activities and tasks. It is an excellent primer for the uninitiated preservice ESL teacher! - Stayc DuBravac, University of Kentucky, USA Sure to be a `go to' text, this volume is an updated and expanded version of the first edition.The book analyzes a number of important challenges based on clear presentation of often complex linguistic and pedagogical issues, and features research and practice updates on the (often misunderstood) use of technology by learners and teachers, a wider range of authentic classroom examples addressing real-world teaching challenges, and a more in-depth description of the particular issues facing teachers and teacher educators worldwide at a time when teachers must address both the potential for development and the grave complexities brought about by our connections, mobility and globalization - in English. - Liz England, Lord Fairfax Community College, USA
