Revitalizing a curriculum for school-age learners



  • At its core, a curriculum is what happens among learners and teachers in the classroom. TESOL's Language Curriculum Development series describe how teachers, curriculum developers, and administrators have developed, adapted, or renewed a language curriculum. In doing so, they have responded creatively and realistically to learners' needs. The contributors to this volume used creative approaches to breathe life into outdated or underdeveloped curricula for school-age English learners. Through collaborative work with students, other teachers, administrators, and researchers, the contributors enhanced English learning through language arts, math, technology, and other subject areas. Sometimes their work required stepping back from cultural norms to innovate the way that their students learn English. Each chapter in this volume provides inspiration as well as practical ideas to educators who want to view their curricula in a different light.
