To the ESL teacher: This book is a compendium of useful and interesting information for ESL teachers. It can be used in three ways: (1) as a resource for developing their own materials; (2) as a guideline for those who practice eclecticism; and (3) as photocopyable handouts for students. Because published textbooks are never completely satisfactory for a particular class, most teachers expect (or prefer!) to supplement the assigned text with their own exercises and activities. For this purpose, The ESL Miscellany is uniquely helpful, and it is organized in a way that is both professionally sound and pedagogically convenient. Any teacher committed to teaching ESL, whether to intensive, academic-bound students, recently arrived immigrants and refugees, or illiterate adults needs a variety of reference and resource books. The ESL Miscellany includes the right to reproduce any of its 292 pages!
To the EFL teacher: You could take this book with you to teach in Indonesia, Warsaw, or Urungi, and you'd use it every day. So said an enthusiastic purchaser of this book at the TESOL Conference last March. I think she is probably right. This is a resource for developing materials; it's a guideline/checklist of facts and information, and it has many lists which can be used as handouts.... A very useful book.
"The ESL Miscellany is perfect for my private tutoring endeavors. Obviously, my lesson planning is truly individualized and, furthermore, my approach is student centered. I like to mix and match techniques. A set of guidelines and checklists is what I needed. I really like the way the material is organized and presented." --Miriam Lopez, Tutor, North Arlington, New Jersey. [via]
