Language Curriculum Design and Socialization by Peter Mickan - Multilingual Matters

Language Curriculum Design and Socialization by Peter Mickan - Multilingual Matters | 21st Century TESOL Resources | Scoop.it

This book applies social theory to curriculum design and sets out a program for language curriculum renewal for the 21st century. It includes many examples of text-based curricula and describes a plan for curriculum renewal based on texts as the unit of analysis for planning, for teaching and for assessment. Underpinned by Halliday’s semiotic theory of language, the book combines the theory of language as a resource for meaning-making with learning language as learning to mean.

 

The curriculum design constructs curriculum around social practices and their texts rather than presenting language as grammatical and lexical objects. This work will provide teachers, teacher educators and curriculum planners with a curriculum model for teaching children and adults in different contexts from preschool to adult education as well as serving as a practical guide for students.

Multiple Perspectives in an International Classroom

Multiple Perspectives in an International Classroom | 21st Century TESOL Resources | Scoop.it

The ability to weigh multiple perspectives—from different schools of thought cultures, or individual viewpoints—is one of the most important skills in the global innovation economy.

 

I've asked Susanna Pierce, a teacher in an international school in Spain (and formerly of the International School of the Americas in San Antonio, Texas) to share how she teaches the weighing of perspectives using the most important assets in her classroom: her students. Although an international school setting provides many different cultural perspectives, I think most of you will find perspectives to be just as varied in the American classroom.
