about

This book is more than a collection of activities or ready-made lesson plans to add to a teaching repertoire. Instead, Goal-Driven Lesson Planning is intended to empower teachers and help them create a principled framework for their teaching-a framework that will shape the varied activities of the ESL classroom into a coherent teaching and learning partnership. After reading this book, teachers and prospective teachers will be able to articulate their individual teaching philosophies.

Goal-Driven Lesson Planning shows readers how to take any piece from English language materials-an assigned text, a random newspaper article, an ESL activity from a website, etc.-and use it to teach students something about language. Readers are walked through the process of reflecting on their role in diagnosing what that "something" is-what students really need-and planning how to get them there and how to know when they got there in a goal-driven principled manner.

 

This book has chapters on the theory of setting specific language goals for students; how to analyze learner needs (including an initial diagnostic and needs-analysis); templates to use when planning goal-driven English language lessons; explicit instruction on giving corrective feedback;  how to recognize and assess student progress; and the mechanics and logistics that facilitate the goal-driven language classroom.
