Abstract:

The Art of Teaching Spanish explores in-depth the findings of research in
second language acquisition (SLA) and other language-related fields and
translates those findings into practical pedagogical tools for current?and
future?Spanish-language instructors. 

This volume addresses how theoretical frameworks affect the application of
research findings to the teaching of Spanish, how logistical factors affect
the way research findings can be applied to teach Spanish, and how findings
from Spanish SLA research would be applicable to Spanish second language
teaching and represented in Spanish curricula through objectives and goals
(as evidenced in pedagogical materials such as textbooks and
computer-assisted language learning software). 

Top SLA researchers and applied linguists lend their expertise on matters
such as foreign language across curriculum programs, the effects of study
abroad and classroom contexts on learning, testing, online learning, the
incorporation of linguistic variation into the classroom, heritage language
learners, the teaching of translation, and other pedagogical issues. Other
common themes of The Art of Teaching Spanish include the rejection of the
concept of a monolithic language competence, the importance of language as
social practice and cultural competence, the psycholinguistic component of
SLA, and the need for more cross-fertilization from related fields.
