TESOL is seeking proposals for short booklets to be considered for inclusion in a new ELT development series, with Thomas Farrell (series editor). According to the attached call sheet,
“The English Language Teacher Development Series is aimed at issues important to practising teachers of English to speakers of other languages (ESOL). ESOL includes ESL (English as a second language), EFL (English as a foreign language), EIL (English as an international language), or TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages). Practicing teachers can use the series to update themselves with current research and theories that can be easily translated into practical classroom applications. Each topic will show a clear transition from recent updates in theory together with how this theory can be put into practice [1/3 theory and debate of theoretical issues followed by 2/3 practical applications that teachers can implement]. Each topic must demonstrate up-to-date knowledge of research and theory and current debates and a discussion on how this new research can be put into practice for teachers in everyday classrooms via reflection questions.”
