Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Referred to by readers as “the greatest language book I have every read,” and touted as the best overview of basic principles and strategies for English language teaching, this widely used guide is a one-stop introduction to teaching English to speakers of other languages.

 

Written in Dìaz-Rico's passionate style, the third edition of this highly praised introduction to teaching English to speakers of other languages continues to provide a concise, yet comprehensible overview of the basic principles, practices, and methods most effective for educating English learners. A breakthrough in language teaching and learning, this thought-provoking text includes coverage of second-language-acquisition issues and techniques, as well as attention to such controversial topics as the influence of culture on schooling, the cultural practices of schooling, and the sociopolitical context of education. In it readers have access to the latest developments in standards-based learning and assessment that inform the design of instruction and get a variety of new features in this thoroughly updated edition, including:

 

a description of the unique contributions of non-native-English-speaking teachers make to the teaching of English

  • up-to-date information on the demographics of English learners and the demand for English teachers worldwide
  • a profile of an elementary school with an innovative social-justice curriculum approach
  • suggestions for using learning centers in English-as-a-foreign-language elementary classrooms
  • an expanded definition of culture to include a contemporary emphasis on identity
  • a critical view on the study of gender and race in the classroom
  • new ways to incorporate volunteers into classroom instruction
  • ideas for encouraging “virtual volunteering”

 

In addition, project based learning and service learning are creatively combined to offer a variety of ways to link English learners with the larger community.

This text seems to be a resounding voice in ESOL. I really would like to see a newer edition but this one is more than sufficient.
