9780070376939 Making Communicative Language Teaching Happen is the first title in a professional series of Foreign Language Teaching Methods texts. Written by well-known and respected teachers and researchers in the field of Second Language Acquisition, Making Communicative Language Teaching Happen addresses important questions such as what it means to teach communicatively, what are proper roles of input and output in the classroom, how do learners read and write in a second language, and what approaches to testing and evaluation are appropriate for the communicative classroom. Making Communicative Language Teaching Happen begins by defining communicative language teaching and proceeds to explore its underlying assumptions, to examine the roles of teachers and learners, to discuss theoretical and research issues relating to it, and to offer practical suggestions. A Student Manual accompanies the text.
