Methods and Materials in Foreign Language Instruction

Description:
This course seeks (1) to relate methods of teaching a foreign language to current Second Language Acquisition (SLA), research and theory and evaluate these methods; (2) to discuss classroom problems in light of current SLA theory; and (3) to look critically at textbooks and create new, specific course material to be tested and shared among all class participants. The course's hands-on approach bridges the gap between theoreticians and classroom practitioners: Students are encouraged-through reading, discussion, teaching demonstrations, and classroom observations-to explore and define the language teacher's role and to question their experience as language learners and teachers.
