ALEXANDRIA, Va. (PRWEB) January 03, 2018

TESOL Press has announced the release of three new titles in the widely
popular English Language Teacher Development series
<http://sites.tesol.org/Bookstore/Series/Teacher_Development/Bookstore/Store/StoreLayouts/Series_Teacher_Development.aspx>.
The books in this series are short, accessible reference books that can be
easily digested by busy English language professionals.

Keeping updated is an ongoing responsibility for a profession that
continually reinvents itself. Teachers are not only expected to know the
latest research, but also how to use it in the classroom. Following the
success of the 23 previously published titles in this series, Thomas S. C.
Farrell, Series Editor, has come back with three new titles that address
hot topics in the TESOL field today.

Curriculum Design in English Language Teaching, Second Language Acquisition
Applied to English Language Teaching, and Sociolinguistics and Language
Teaching tackle complex topics using a theory-to-practice approach, and are
written in jargon-free language in 50 pages or less, making them accessible
to novice as well as experienced English language professionals.

"I like to describe these books as small but mighty," notes Myrna Jacobs,
Director of Publishing and Product Development. "They are short and can be
read quickly, but are packed with immediately relevant information and
tools for the classroom."

Each book offers a variety of practical methods and guided reflections that
allow teachers to interact with the materials presented. The books can be
used in preservice settings, in-service courses, and by individuals looking
for ways to refresh their practice.

Curriculum Design in English Language Teaching walks readers through the
essential steps to take when designing curriculum and authors Ilka Kostka
and Lucy Bunning offer recommendations for analyzing curricula to inform
future change.

Second Language Acquisition Applied to English Language Teaching discusses
second language acquisition research and its correlation to successful
lesson preparation. Readers will learn the three essential components of
ESL/EFL students' learning and other factors that can improve or challenge
a student's ability to learn.

Sociolinguistics and Language Teaching looks at the relationship between
language and society and the importance of showing language in a real
social setting. The easy-to-follow and reflective guide covers
multilingualism, gender bias, identity development, and the role of
gatekeepers in language learning policy and practices.

Books in the English Language Teacher Development Series are available for
purchase through the TESOL Press Bookstore
<http://sites.tesol.org/Bookstore> in both print and ebook (PDF) formats.
More information and sample chapters are also available.

Review copies can be requested from tesolpubs(at)brightkey(dot)net
