Collaborative Research in Second Language Education. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: In its exploration of four themes, this book shows how researchers, teachers and pupils for whom English is an additional language can develop together. The first theme is research – of a kind that is of direct benefit to teachers – done by teachers and teacher educators, with and for teachers. The second is professional development, since it shows how the research contributes to becoming a better teacher. The third theme is collaboration – of learners with teachers, teachers with teachers, and teachers with teacher educators. Finally, the studies are set within different language education contexts, seeking commonalties where the terms “foreign,” “second,” and “modern” have generally been divisive.
The issues covered include the role of language across the curriculum, the links between oracy and literacy in bilingual learning, the relationship between communicative teaching and communicative testing, teacher development through distance learning programs, and the appropriacy to context of educational philosophies and technologies. Illustrating how colleagues in schools and higher education institutions can work together effectively for the benefit of all learners, it will be invaluable to educators searching for example of practitioner research to further their own development.
