Title: Task-Based Language Teaching from the Teachers' Perspective
Subtitle: Insights from New Zealand
Written By: Martin East
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/tblt.3
Series Title: Task-Based Language Teaching 3
Description:

Task-based language teaching (TBLT) is being encouraged as part of a major
overhaul of the entire school languages curriculum in New Zealand. However,
teachers often struggle with understanding what TBLT is, and how to make
TBLT work in classrooms. Using the stories that emerged from a series of
interviews with teachers (the curriculum implementers) and with advisors (the
curriculum leaders), this book highlights the possibilities for TBLT innovation in
schools. It also identifies the constraints, and proposes how these might be
addressed. The result is a book that, whilst rooted in a particular local context,
provides a valuable sourcebook of teacher stories that have relevance for a
wide range of people working in a diverse range of contexts. This book will be of
genuine interest to all those who wish to understand more about TBLT
innovation, and the opportunities and challenges it brings.
