Overview

The volume consists of twelve classroom studies concerned with the implementation of learner autonomy in English classes. The individual studies range from primary school level to university level. They include studies on multi-media dictionary work, reading logs, peer correction, communication strategies, vocabulary learning strategies, oral proficiency, as well as work with literary texts and authentic news texts. Two studies focus specifically on the teaching of other subjects in English (Content and Language Integrated Learning). The authors describe their own empirical studies, record their classroom observations and make practical suggestions for teachers to take up in their own classrooms. All the studies are firmly grounded in second language acquisition theory and established didactic principles. They are prefaced by an introduction and a background chapter on the theory and practice of learner autonomy in language teaching.
