Description - Beyond Methods: Macrostrategies for Language Teaching by B. Kumaravadivelu
In this work, B. Kumaravadivelu presents a macrostrategic framework designed to help both beginning and experienced language teachers develop a systematic, coherent and personal theory of practice. His book offers to provide the tools a teacher needs in order to self-observe, self-analyze, and self-evaluate his or her own teaching acts. The framework consists of ten macrostrategies based on current theoretical, empirical and experiential knowledge of second language and foreign language teaching. These strategies enable teachers to evaluate classroom practices and to generate techniques and activities for realizing teaching goals. With checklists, surveys, projects and reflective tasks to encourage critical thinking, the book is designed to be both practical and accessible.
