"Provides an overview of the current state of materials design in language teaching. The materials discussed include the complete range of language-learning resources from teacher-created materials to commercially-developed tasks, texts, and activities. Seventeen original chapters explore the issues involved in the design, implementation, and evaluation of materials in a wide variety of contexts. The contributors, an international group of established experts, explain the theories and principles underlying their approaches to materials design. They examine the issues that materials writers encounter when developing language-teaching materials, both in print and digital formats, and present a variety of solutions that help resolve those issues. Discussion questions and tasks follow each chapter to make this volume useful to prospective and practicing teachers alike"--P. [4] of cover.

This book is entitled Syllabus Design for English Language Teaching which was written and developed based on a research “Communicative Competence Based Syllabus Design for Speaking Course One for Students of The English Department”. It mainly provides detailed elucidation of the process of designing a syllabus as one of systematic steps of curriculum development in language teaching. Curriculum development in language teaching should be done since it implies an effort carried out by the language teachers to improve the quality of language teaching through some stages of systematic planning such as a needs analysis, formulation of learning objectives, development of syllabus and teaching materials, teaching materials’ implementation as well as evaluation to find out the effectiveness of the curriculum by taking into account the achievement of learning goals in language teaching program. This book generally includes some information on the discussion of: (1). The status of English in the education system of Indonesia and the outcomes of English teaching all this time according to researchers in the field of language teaching; (2). The distinction between the terms of curriculum and syllabus therewith the syllabus design theory from the standpoint of ESP and Language Program Development; (3). Theory of needs analysis as the main cornerstone in the development of syllabus design; (4). The concept and the theory of communicative competence based syllabus design; (5). The systematic stages in designing a competency-based syllabus ranging from preliminary stages with the needs analysis, the stage of teaching materials development, as well as the stage of reviewing the learning outcomes; (6). A practical example of a study which is presented to make the readers clearly understand how to apply the stages of developing the communicative competence based syllabus design Buku Persembahan Penerbit PrenadaMedia

Based on original research and novel concepts, this book investigates the nature and use of terminology from linguistic and applied viewpoints. Throughout, problems with terminology, such as overuse by teachers and cases of synonymy and polysemy, are considered and solutions are offered. Part One looks firstly at some basic concepts, then draws important distinctions between pedagogic and scientific terminology, and between transparent, opaque and iconic terms, before examining the historical, lexical and grammatical nature of terms. Part Two attempts to estimate the value and relevance of terminology in language teaching and describes the use and knowledge of terminology in various language-teaching-related constituencies: learners, teachers, textbooks, grammars and research. It concludes with a discussion of the criteria for evaluating terms and an analysis of terms used in ELT.

"As researchers such as Gray (2013) and Paiz (2015) have established, textbooks within the industry of English Language Teaching (ELT) have historically done a poor job of incorporating queer content. The industry of ELT textbooks is lucrative with a global reach, so the impact the books have is very significant. In the name of profits, it is common to see the most conservative version of a textbook used for all markets, which means that LGBTQ representation is virtually invisible (Gray, 2010). It may be done in the name of cultural sensitivity, but as Kimberlé Crenshaw (1991) says in her landmark work on intersectionality, “ignoring differences within groups frequently contributes to tension among groups.” At the same time, LGBTQ issues in ELT have received growing attention, and researchers have explored the best practices to incorporate queer content. Judith Butler’s (2006) inquiry-based approach, as adapted by Nelson (2002) to challenging the ways gender norms are dictated by society and imposed through language has been particularly influential. Several teacher-researchers have built on this and taken into account the political implications of ELT with “intersectional approaches” using texts written by queer people from outside Kachru’s (1986) “Inner Circle.” Examples of this would be O’Mochain (2006), who had students in Japan read first person accounts of queer Japanese people, and Paiz and Zhu (2018), which recounts Paiz’s use of Sri Lankan-Canadian writer Selvadurai’s (1994) novel Funny Boy as a way of introducing queer themes to a class of university students in China. In both cases, this approach yielded positive results, and it is from this that there is a framework for researching and assessing the extent to which the most recent textbooks and online materials have changed (if at all) regarding gender and sexuality, and if it is done successfully. Gray and Cooke (2018) call for more study connecting queer intersectionality and linguistics, looking at people’s lives as being complex and dynamic as well as shaped by multiple different forces of gender, race, economics, and nationality. For this master’s thesis, I used this framework to analyze some of the most recently published ELT textbooks to determine whether they have improved in terms of LGBTQ representation, and suggested ways that the materials could be improved. I also looked at online materials, including lessons published several years ago, as well as recently as all are currently available, and found that there are more attempts to address LGBTQ topics (primarily just lesbian and gay) than there are in textbooks but that the approaches are often problematic. I suggested ways that they could be improved, and also provided examples from film, literature, and online resources that could be adapted into ELT texts"--

The Routledge Handbook of English Language Teaching is the definitive reference volume for postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students of Applied Linguistics, ELT/TESOL, and Language Teacher Education, and for ELT professionals engaged in in-service teacher development and/or undertaking academic study. Progressing from ‘broader’ contextual issues to a ‘narrower’ focus on classrooms and classroom discourse, the volume’s inter-related themes focus on: ELT in the world: contexts and goals planning and organising ELT: curriculum, resources and settings methods and methodology: perspectives and practices second language learning and learners teaching language: knowledge, skills and pedagogy understanding the language classroom. The Handbook’s 39 chapters are written by leading figures in ELT from around the world. Mindful of the diverse pedagogical, institutional and social contexts for ELT, they convincingly present the key issues, areas of debate and dispute, and likely future developments in ELT from an applied linguistics perspective. Throughout the volume, readers are encouraged to develop their own thinking and practice in contextually appropriate ways, assisted by discussion questions and suggestions for further reading that accompany every chapter.

Materials and Methods in ELT is an essential resource for teachers or for those engaged in taking professional courses relating to all aspects of English language teaching. Now available in its 3rd edition, this popular teachers’ guide offers a comprehensive and useful introduction to the principles and practice of teaching English as a foreign/second language. It examines the ideas behind current methodology and teaching materials, in addition to offering a practical guide to approaching materials and methods, evaluation and adaptation, technology for materials and methods, and teaching in under-resourced classrooms. These principles are then related to the individual language skills of reading, listening, speaking, and writing. The authors examine the different methodologies available to teachers for organizing and running an ELT classroom; discussing group and pair work, individualization, classroom observation, and the teachers’ role in the contemporary ELT context. Updated throughout, the 3rd edition features a new section on technology for materials and methods, as well as a new chapter on IT in English language teaching, and inclusion of new samples from current teaching materials.
