Teaching English - As A First Additional Language In The Intermediate And Senior Phase (Paperback): Anna Hugo Teaching English - As A First Additional Language In The Intermediate And Senior Phase (Paperback)
Anna Hugo 2
R333 R269 Discovery Miles 2 690 Save R64 (19%) In stock

The intermediate phase is a critically important period in schooling, when most learners make the transition from learning in their home language to using English as the language of learning and teaching. Learners and teachers find it a daunting time. There are language and literacy challenges in learning English as a subject, in addition to the linguistic complexities of classrooms in urban areas. Recent research has indicated that many intermediate phase learners are also still not fluent readers. Teaching English: As A First Additional Language In The Intermediate And Senior Phase will support teachers in overcoming these classroom challenges.

The book starts by exploring who the Intermediate and Senior Phase learner is – physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively – and then focuses on the skills of reading and viewing, writing, and speaking and listening.

In addition, the text:

  • explains the supporting role the home language can play in learning an additional language
  • provides strategies for integrating language skills in a second-language classroom
  • includes examples of how language teaching can be extended across all curriculum subjects
  • explores ways in which assessment can be used to support students’ learning
  • focuses on the use of information and communication technologies in the language classroom

Teaching English: As A First Additional Language In The Intermediate And Senior Phase is suitable for preservice teachers completing a BEd or a PGCE. In-service teachers will also find it useful.

This is the definitive book about the biggest changes in education, schooling and teaching since the school classroom was invented almost 300 years ago. The vision and power of the original "Learning Revolution" remains, but the authors now address current developments such as: how instant information and interactive technology are finally forcing a complete rethink of everything we've ever believed about education; how new interlocking networks are creating dramatic new models for learning; and how new teaching methods are revolutionizing schooling in pockets around the world. Dryden, the award-winning television and radio talk show host, is just completing a series of television programmes on new methods of learning and Vos is putting the finishing touches to a seven-year doctoral research project into the same subject. The combined power of these two dynamic authors is highly compelling!
