Currently, she is the coordinator for ACTFL to the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).Review:
The major strength of Teacher's Handbook is that it provides an appropriate balance between theory and practice. Foreign language teachers need to understand the theoretical foundations of language acquisition, AND see how theories associated with language teaching and learning translate into practice in realworld settings. The text presents important concepts, principles, standards, appraoches etc. in a format that can be easily understood and internalized. There are numerous concrete examples (e.g. Teach and Reflect; Chapter Case Studies; Chapter Figures and Tables) that illustrate practical applications. Additionally, the text covers the four skills (speaking, writing, listening comprehension, and reading) and culture in an integrated way. I consider Teacher's Handbook to be a foundational text for students; a text that provides a theoretical and practical foundation upon which language teachers (present and future) will continue to build through research, teaching experience, and self-reflection and analysis. The text is particularly beneficial for pre-service foreign language teachers.
