Appropriate Methodology and Social Context Summary


Appropriate Methodology and Social Context by Adrian Holliday (Canterbury Christ Church University College, Kent)

The methodology of English language education has been developed mainly in the English-speaking countries of 'the west' and does not always fit the needs of the rest of the world. Appropriate Methodology and Social Context investigates this state of affairs by looking at the wider social context of what happens between teachers and students. It uses an ethnographic framework to explore the complex and diverse cultures of classrooms, of student groups and teacher communities in different countries and educational environments. It goes on to argue that these factors have to be acknowledged in the design and implementation of appropriate methodologies. Although a major concern is with classroom teaching, the methodologies for curriculum and project management and design are also addressed.

Appropriate Methodology and Social Context Reviews


'Overall the book offers a succinct and much-needed argument for contextualising all language teaching. The prose is lucid, the generalisations are well-documented, and the argument for context-based language teaching is persuasive. This text is a must for those of us involved in training ESL teachers.' English for Specific Purposes, 1997
