Description - Materials Evaluation and Design for Language Teaching by Ian McGrath
Teaching materials play a crucial role in teaching-learning. When these take the form of a textbook it is essential that the textbook be carefully selected to meet both external requirements and the needs of the teachers. It is also important that teachers be able to mediate between the textbook and the learners, adapting and supplementing the book as necessary. "Materials Evaluation and Design for Language Teaching" provides a systematic approach to the selection and subsequent evaluation of textbooks and practical advice on their adaptation and supplementation. For teachers who prefer to prepare their own materials rather than basing their teaching on a book, there are suggestions on systematizing the process of materials development and on the use of learner-generated materials. Key features include: integrated and wide-ranging coverage of the topic, including reference to the use of concordances and the Internet; numerous examples; and interleaved tasks which can be utilized by an instructor.
