From the Back Cover:

 

How do I plan a lesson?

How will I know if my students are learning?

How do I teach language while also teaching content material?

How do I effectively use technology in language teaching?

How can I ensure the academic success of my students?

How can I help my students have more contact with the new language?

 

These are the practical questions language and mainstream teachers struggle with as they enter today’s diverse classrooms in an era when they must focus not only on their everyday teaching, but also on students’ second language development. The answers to these questions and more are here, in this much-needed, comprehensive, practical guide to language teaching in second foreign, and content-based settings.

 

In a warm, supportive tone, respected author and experienced language teacher Elaine K. Horwitz clearly explains the fundamental concepts of second language acquisition and language teaching, using actual classroom situations that help students learn to make instructional decisions in their own future teaching settings.

The perfect choice for ESL and Foreign Language methods courses, this guide helps teachers develop a personal approach to language teaching, suited to their own unique teaching situations.
