The Coursebook and Beyond
The Coursebook and Beyond

The Coursebook and Beyond is a resource for current and future English language teachers. It has been written both for use by the individual teacher and for use in teacher training courses. The book looks at the central role played by the coursebook in most language courses, at some of the curricular ideas behind a coursebook and at the different ways a coursebook may go about implementing these. For the most part, the focus of The Coursebook and Beyond is very practical, a focus on how teachers can deal with a prescribed body of materials. The book presents ideas on how to select (or reject) a coursebook, on different ways to work with the materials within a coursebook, and on how to jump outside the text altogether where this helps to better attain the goals of the course and where the coursebook might need augmentation.
