Details: Product Description Teach foreign language effectively with TEACHER'S HANDBOOK: CONTEXTUALIZED LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION! Designed to prepare you to teach foreign language, this fifth edition handbook incorporates the Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st Century, recently refreshed as World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages. It provides a practical framework for integrating the Five C's and ACTFL-NCSSFL Can-Do Statements into foreign language teaching, as well as case studies of beginning teachers as they learn to navigate the complexity of "being on the other side of the desk." Mastering the material is easy with examples of communication in authentic settings, thoughtful case studies, extensive appendices, and a text-specific website with links to teacher resources and streaming video of standards-based instruction. Review "The book gives an excellent overview of issues relating to teaching foreign languages. The authors have their preferred approaches, but the presentation is balanced and they are able to support their opinions without seeming doctrinaire (�) I think Shrum and Glisan have put together one of the professions finest texts ever published. " "It is a fantastic textbook, containing a wealth of useful, up-to-date information on pedagogy, theoretical background and becoming a teacher that is presented clearly and accurately. The exercises and case studies are detailed and useful. (�) This is an invaluable textbook for future language teachers. It provides a wealth of pedagogical methods and resources which are thoroughly grounded in the ACTFL standards and the latest research on second language acquisition and developmental psychology. By far the best textbook on the market for courses on teaching second languages to K-12 students." About the Author Judith L. Shrum earned her Ph.
