The 6 principles for exemplary teaching of English learners: Adult education and workforce development. TESOL International Association (2019)
TESOL International Association have recently published 2 more books of interest to ESP teachers in their 6 principles for exemplary teaching of English learners series. The second book in the series focusses on teaching English in Adult education and workforce development programmes.
The book consists of a preface and 5 chapters.
The preface introduces the 6 principles of exemplary teaching on which the series is based and describes the intended audience for the series. The 6 principles provide a solid foundation for any ESP programme, and, though they need a some localised refinement for the wide diversity of ESP contexts, they are an excellent source of
reflection on current teaching practice.
The 6 principles provide a basis for decision making, planning and teaching. They are:
- Know your learners,
- Create conditions for language learning,
- Design high-quality lessons for language development,
- Adapt lesson delivery as needed,
- Monitor and assess student language development,
- Engage and collaborate within a community of practice.
