The learner-centred curriculum : a study in second language teaching by David Nunan( Book )

54 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 738 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

Second language teaching & learning by David Nunan( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this volume is to provide a contemporary portrait of second language learning and teaching, to identify major trends and issues, to show where these trends and issues have come from, and to illustrate ways teachers can incorporate these ideas in their own teaching practice. The book is a personal account, tracing the author's struggles with theoretical and conceptual issues and illustrating practical solutions. The book is intended for practicing teachers as well as future teachers. It is composed of ten chapters divided into three parts. Part one is a concept map for the rest of the book, covering the conceptual and empirical basis for second language learning and teaching. In part two, language is looked at in context, focusing on those aspects of language that can provide teachers with insights for developing materials and pedagogical procedures. The chapters focus on the learner and learning processes respectively. Part three focuses on thematic issues that arose in parts one and two. Chapters examining the "Cinderella skill," what it is that differentiates spoken from written language, key theoretical and empirical underpinnings of a reading program, and a discussion of a discourse-based approach to writing complete the book. A glossary, index, and extensive references, as well as many charts, tables, and diagrams are included. (Kft)

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

17 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 247 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."--Jacket
