Publisher Comments:

New Perspectives on Grammar Teaching in Second Language Classrooms brings together various approaches to the contextualized teaching of grammar and communicative skills as integrated components of second language instruction. Its purpose is to show from both theoretical and practical perspectives that grammar teaching can be made productive and useful in ESL and EFL classrooms. In this text:

*First-rate scholars approach the teaching of grammar from multiple complementary perspectives, providing an original, comprehensive treatment of the topic.

*Discourse analysis and research data are used to address such pedagogical areas as grammatical and lexical development in speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

*The communicative perspective on ESL and EFL instruction that is presented provides ways for learners to enhance their production skills, whereas the meaning-based grammar instruction can supplement and strengthen current methodology with a communicative focus.

This volume is intended as a foundational text for second language grammar pedagogy courses at the advanced undergraduate and master's levels.

Book News Annotation:

Nine international specialists contribute 12 chapters on theoretical and practical aspects of grammar teaching in ESL/EFL classrooms. Topics include ways to include grammar in the curricula and reasons for this inclusion; producing awareness of structures; the advantages of a communicative, task-based approach; ten criteria to inform spoken grammar projects; discourse-based instruction; structure-based communicative tasks within a meaning-focused context; an analysis of instructional options in current grammar textbooks; and the use of discovery tasks and authentic language. Intended as a foundational text for second language grammar pedagogy courses at the advanced undergraduate and master's levels.
