Summary

A much-needed resource in an era when all mainstream classroom teachers need to be constantly focusing on language, ''Becoming a Language Teacher'' recognizes that the development of ''academic literacy'' is the goal of many language teachers and essential to the school success of English language learners-unlike most methods books, which concentrate on language for communication purposes rather than for academic needs. Reviewers Praise this New Addition to the ELL/EFL field: '' The strength of this book is the practical suggestions that it provides as far as teaching writing, reading, listening, and speaking to second and foreign language learners.'' ''-Eva Yerende, University of Texas at Arlington'' '' The style of writing is very readable and comprehensible. The author includes activities and strategies that many students want and need to help them connect to theory.'' ''-Carol L. Butterfield, Central Washington University'' '' [This book] is thorough and concise. It is practical and insightful for both preservice and inservice teachers.'' ''-Gerald McCain, Southern Oregon University'' Employing a warm and supportive style, respected author Elaine Kolker Horwitz clearly explains fundamental knowledge about second language acquisition and language teaching and answers practical questions such as: How do I plan a lesson? How will I know if the students are learning? How do I teach language when I am also teaching content material? How do I effectively use technology in language teaching? How can I ensure the academic success of my students? By considering actual classroom situations, students learn how to make instructional decisions in their own teaching settings. This resourceful text will surely become a must-have for any language teacher.
