Honing Our Craft

HONING OUR CRAFT is the title of a volume of chapters about contemporary issues in classroom language teaching. 

The focus is on practical applications and suggestions for language educators that they can adapt to their particular contexts. 

We are hoping this book would help educators better grasp some fundamental aspects of foreign language pedagogy and offer some balance between research and practice.

What is HONING OUR CRAFT?

World language pedagogy is constantly evolving as our understanding of different aspects of the profession grows. As informed practitioners, we (re)consider how best to foster language development, assess students’ progress, meet their individual needs, capitalize on the affordances of technology, and enact socially just practices. 

This volume is written by educator for educators and offers over a dozen chapters on timely topics with four sections in each chapter: A contextualization of the particular issue, clear explanations and common misperceptions, concrete demonstrations of classroom activities, and suggested “do’s and don’ts”.

The expert authors use reader-friendly language and focus on practical applications that can be adapted to the wide variety of teaching contexts in which world language teachers hone our craft day after day.
