"Provides an overview of the current state of materials design in language teaching. The materials discussed include the complete range of language-learning resources from teacher-created materials to commercially-developed tasks, texts, and activities. Seventeen original chapters explore the issues involved in the design, implementation, and evaluation of materials in a wide variety of contexts. The contributors, an international group of established experts, explain the theories and principles underlying their approaches to materials design. They examine the issues that materials writers encounter when developing language-teaching materials, both in print and digital formats, and present a variety of solutions that help resolve those issues. Discussion questions and tasks follow each chapter to make this volume useful to prospective and practicing teachers alike"--P. [4] of cover.

This research collection presents a critical review of the materials used for learning English around the world. The first section includes a discussion of materials for specific learners and purposes, such as young learners, self-study, academic writing and general proficiency. The second section presents a detailed study of the materials used in Europe, Asia, North America, South America, Africa and Australia, and critically evaluates their effectiveness in the teaching of English to speakers of other languages. Taking both the teacher's and the learner's needs into consideration, the book makes a positive contribution to the future of research in materials development, and has practical applications. This comprehensive, critical analysis of materials in use around the world will be useful for academics researching materials development and applied linguistics and for students on post-graduate applied linguistics and ELT courses.

This book is entitled Syllabus Design for English Language Teaching which was written and developed based on a research “Communicative Competence Based Syllabus Design for Speaking Course One for Students of The English Department”. It mainly provides detailed elucidation of the process of designing a syllabus as one of systematic steps of curriculum development in language teaching. Curriculum development in language teaching should be done since it implies an effort carried out by the language teachers to improve the quality of language teaching through some stages of systematic planning such as a needs analysis, formulation of learning objectives, development of syllabus and teaching materials, teaching materials’ implementation as well as evaluation to find out the effectiveness of the curriculum by taking into account the achievement of learning goals in language teaching program. This book generally includes some information on the discussion of: (1). The status of English in the education system of Indonesia and the outcomes of English teaching all this time according to researchers in the field of language teaching; (2). The distinction between the terms of curriculum and syllabus therewith the syllabus design theory from the standpoint of ESP and Language Program Development; (3). Theory of needs analysis as the main cornerstone in the development of syllabus design; (4). The concept and the theory of communicative competence based syllabus design; (5). The systematic stages in designing a competency-based syllabus ranging from preliminary stages with the needs analysis, the stage of teaching materials development, as well as the stage of reviewing the learning outcomes; (6). A practical example of a study which is presented to make the readers clearly understand how to apply the stages of developing the communicative competence based syllabus design Buku Persembahan Penerbit PrenadaMedia

Teaching Materials and the Roles of EFL/ESL Teachers is published amidst a decade long increase in academic publications and training courses concerned with the evaluation and design of English language teaching materials. It is timely to consider what effect the advice on offer has had on teachers' practice. Are teachers evaluating materials carefully, using textbooks in the ways expected by textbook writers, developing their own materials, and mediating between materials and learners in the ways advised in the professional literature? The book explores these issues from a variety of perspectives. The views of publishers/textbook writers, those contributing to the professional literature, and teacher educators are synthesised to establish a 'theory' of how teachers can best fulfil their roles vis-à-vis materials and learners. This is then compared with 'practice', as represented by published accounts of teachers' actual practices and learners' perspectives. The conclusion reached is that teacher education in materials evaluation and design is essential and suggestions are offered as to the form this might take. The book is intended particularly for MA students and teacher educators concerned with materials evaluation and design, but is of interest to all those concerned with the publication and use of English language teaching materials.

Over the last decade task-based approaches to language learning and teaching (TBLT) have become a global focus of increased levels of research. Governments around the world have turned to TBLT as a potential solution for curricula that lack authentic and meaningful engagement with language learning and are failing to motivate students as a result. This book focuses on Asia, where this shift has been particularly in evidence. TBLT has often been implemented in top-down approaches to curriculum development, which presents a huge range of challenges at the cultural as well as the pedagogic level. Contemporary Task Based Language Teaching in Asia looks at the drivers, stakeholders and obstacles across the region. Some countries have adapted TBLT to deal with the local constraints, others have found it hard to apply and many are still in the process of investigating its implementation in their specific contexts. This collection is important to all involved in language development, from curriculum reform to materials development. It assists from programme evaluation to the setting of assessment standards. The chapters cover all aspects of language education across Asia, from primary to tertiary, private and public education, as well as innovations at local, regional and national levels.
