Language and culture : reflective narratives and the emergence of identity by David Nunan( )

22 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This state-of-the-art exploration of language, culture, and identity is orchestrated through prominent scholars' and teachers' narratives, each weaving together three elements: a personal account based on one or more memorable or critical incidents that occurred in the course of learning or using a second or foreign language; an interpretation of the incidents highlighting their impact in terms of culture, identity, and language; the connections between the experiences and observations of the author and existing literature on language, culture, and identity." "What makes this book stand out is the way in which authors meld traditional "academic" approaches to inquiry with their own personalized voices. This opens a window on different ways of viewing and doing research in Applied Linguistics and TESOL. What gives the book its power is the compelling nature of the narratives themselves. Telling stories is a fundamental way of representing and making sense of the human condition. These stories unpack, in an accessible but rigorous fashion, complex socio-cultural constructs of culture, identity, the self and other, and reflexivity, and offer a way into these constructs for teachers, teachers in preparation, and neophyte researchers. Contributors from around the world give the book broad and international appeal."--BOOK JACKET
The learner-centred curriculum : a study in second language teaching by David Nunan( Book )

59 editions published between 1988 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditionally, the curriculum has been regarded as a statement of what should be done in a course of study. This book takes as its starting point what is done by language teachers in their classes. Nunan develops a concept of the negotiated model in which the curriculum is a collaboration between teachers and students. The author looks at the curriculum from a teacher's perspective and reports on what instructors focus on in planning, implementing, and evaluating language courses. He synthesizes theoretical models and recent empirical studies, and considers the vital part by curriculum design in coordinating the many aspects of language teaching. --From publisher's description
