Abstract:

NEW EDITION

'Once in a while you come across an edited volume that is hard to put down.
Understanding the Language Classroom is one such rare volume...you will
soon find yourself wanting to read evermore, for the views expressed in
this volume are as diverse as the sixteen individuals that contributed to
the wealth of information contained in this well-crafted work...it is an
important addition to anyone's list of edited volumes on second languages
and the complexity of learning, and I recommend it most highly...' - The
Reading Matrix 

This edited volume problematizes prescription, efficiency, and technical
solutions as orientations to classroom language learning. The ideas that
have found most resonance in the contributors' attempts at understanding
language classroom life are the inherent complexity and idiosyncrasy of
classroom life, the central importance of the participants' own
understandings, the relationship between classroom life and teachers' and
students' lives, negotiation between teachers and learners, the
relationship between the local and the global, and the 'quality' of
classroom life. These themes are addressed in the contexts of language
learning, adult literacy education and language teacher education. 

The starting point for this collection is an original paper by Dick
Allwright in which he outlines his view of Six Promising Directions in
Applied Linguistics. The other distinguished contributors respond to this
discussion with their own interpretations and from their own experience.
The contributors are Michael P. Breen, Maria Antonieta Alba Celani, Hywel
Coleman, John F. Fanselow and Roger Barnard, Donald Freeman, Simon Gieve
and Inés K. Miller, Adrian Holliday, Ming-I Lydia Tseng and Roz Ivani?,
Elaine E. Tarone, Tony Wright and Devon Woods. Kathleen Bailey's Foreword
sets the scene.
