Experimental Practice in ELT: Walk on the wild side

121 pages1 hour


Want to try out something new in the classroom? Shake things up and get out of a teaching rut? How about taking a walk on the wild side of ELT?

This book gives both experienced and new teachers detailed frameworks to successfully implement experimental lessons. Aiming to create an up-to-date work on modern areas for experimentation, the authors selected five hot experimental areas in ELT: Dogme, lexical chunking, corpora in the classroom, translation 2.0 and CLIL. Each chapter provides history and background on each area, a sample lesson plan, opportunities & risks as well as dos & don’ts for each practice area. A “toolbox” at the end of each chapter opens the path for further exploration of the experimental practice jungle, with current trends and key resources. Each chapter follows the same user-friendly template, making the book a simple-to-use guide to experimentation in the ELT classroom.

This book is aimed at:

New teachers who want to start experimenting early to develop good habits
Experienced teachers looking to escape old habits while developing professionally
Cambridge Delta candidates embarking upon their Experimental Practice assignment
Teachers seeking new ways to engage and inspire both themselves and their learners
So what are you waiting for? Take a walk on the wild side!
