Methods of Language Teaching: introduction to 7 methods:

the grammar/translation method,
the audio-lingual method,
the cognitive approach,
total physical response,
the natural approach,
the communicative approach,
total physical response storytelling.

A brief textual description of the historical background, the theories of language and language learning on which the method is based, and a sampling of representative classroom activities.

 Linguistique appliquée et disciplinarisation: Histoire Épistémologie Langage, 2011. | TELT | Scoop.it
Open access to the special issue on the history of applied linguistics.
Shona Whyte's insight:
The introduction has a handy "petite chronologie (couramment admise)" of applied linguistics and a lot of the papers are in English, including one by Richard Smith on Palmer (http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/al/research/collections/elt_archive/). Also two in/on French by Léon and Berthet.

On the mortality of language learning methods: Decoo 2001

On the mortality of language learning methods: Decoo 2001 | TELT | Scoop.it
This introduction has set the tone for my lecture: a strong language learning methodology that dominated Europe and the America's for about 30 years, from 1880 till 1910, finally died, to be replaced by a successor. I will structure the rest of my presentation as follows: - a quick overview of trends in the 20th century - variables that make the success of a method - reasons for the decline and death of a method But first I must define what I understand by this key word - "a method".
Shona Whyte's insight:
Decoo's conclusion: "the constant change in methods is a fascinating phenomenon. It reveals how complex language learning really is and how much further research is needed to better understand the intricate mechanisms and the many variables that play their role. But above all, the history of language learning methods teaches us academic humility: to recognize complexity and to avoid extreme and simplistic standpoints."

The Negotiated Syllabus

The Negotiated Syllabus | TELT | Scoop.it
I suggested in my last post that a real paradigm shift in ELT would involve throwing out the coursebook and standardised tests and replacing them with a process-driven approach which concentrates on the “how” more than the “what” of teaching.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Geoff Jordan comes back to the question of learner needs and objectives in the language classroom, linking this to task-based language teaching in what looks like will be a series of posts.

TBLT, Silent Way & TPR: Chris Jones

TBLT, Silent Way & TPR: Chris Jones | TELT | Scoop.it

"a description of the lessons I remember best and then a reflection on the implications for teaching and research"

Shona Whyte's insight:

Why people are still playing around with TPR and the Silent Way is beyond me, but apparently they are and Chris Jones has tried them out and chased down some references.
