Teaching of English (Classroom Practices)


A need to review and redesign the B.Ed. syllabus was felt as NCF-2005 expects the teacher to look at school education in a holistic manner. It advocates learner-centred learning rather than teacher-centred teaching. Teacher’s attitude, aptitude and motivation play an important role because the teacher needs to engage with the learning process of the learner. Teacher as a facilitator helps learners construct their knowledge. The teacher should be able to participate meaningfully to transact the syllabus and textbooks effectively along with teaching-learning materials. Therefore, the teacher should be well-versed not only with the subject content but also with the pedagogy of learning.

English is a foreign language for Indian students and to teach English to them is a tedious job. To make this language clear to the students, a sound knowledge of pedagogy is essential. In this book the latest trends and practices in teaching all the four English language skills, adequate coverage of the syllabus of many unviersities, suitability of classroom strategies, linguistic system, pedagogical aspects, aspects of teaching English, innovative learning resources, pedagogical analysis, creative form of English language, skills in English literary form, support services, social networking, pedagogical analysis, planning, evaluation, assessment and different types of lesson plans and learning plans extensive use of examples and lucid presentation – are some of the distinguished features of this book.
