    • Roles, Approaches, andMethods By Christine Arwakhi & Stephanie White
    • Chapter 1: ConceptualizingTeaching Acts
      • The role of a teacher
      • artists, scientists, managers, mentors, counselors
    • Teachers as Passive Technicians
      • Primary goal: promote student comprehension of content knowledge
      • theorists construct knowledge and teachers understand and implement them to students
      • “ so passive, so unchallenging, so boring that teachers often lose their sense of wonder and excitement about learning to teach” (Kinchelo, 1993, p.204).
    • Teachers as Reflective Practitioners
      • Teaching is seen not just as a series of predetermined procedures but as context-sensitive action grounded in intellectual thought
      • The difference between techs & reflective practitioners: can bring about their own perspectives related to theories that cannot be matched by expert(theorists) who are far removed from the realities of the classroom
    • Teachers as Transformative Intellectuals
      • This idea is derived mainly from the works of critical pedagogists and through the philosophy of the Brazilian thinker Paulo Freire
      • schools and colleges are not simply instructional sites; they are, in fact, “cultural arenas where heterogeneous ideological, discursive, and social forms collide in an unremitting struggle for dominance”
    • Teachers as Transformative Intellectuals cont.
      • What do they do?
      • explore problems they themselves have posed about life in and outside of the classroom (inquiry oriented)
      • promote student discussion
      • promote self-reflection
      • familiarize themselves with linguistically and culturally diversity of their student population
    • Turn to page 16 THINK, PAIR, SHARE Out of three roles discussed, which role do you believe to be most beneficial to your students and why?
    • Professional Theory VS Personal Theory
      • Professional Theory: theories that are transmitted to teachers in colleges, universities, etc
      • Personal Theory: individual theory unique to each person which is developed by putting professional theories into practice
    • Teachers Theory of Practice
      • 3 levels
      • Technical Level: teachers are content with using ideas generated by outside experts
      • Practical Level: teachers not only articulate their criteria but also engage in theorizing about the nature of their subjects, students, and learning/teaching process
      • Critical or Emancipatory Level: teacher theorizing is concerned with wider ethnical, social, historical, and political issues
    • Chapter 2 Understand Postmethod Pedagogy
      • 11 Methods of language learning and teaching:
          • audio-lingual method
          • communicative method
          • community language learning
          • direct method
          • grammar-translation method
          • natural approach
          • oral approach
          • silent way
          • situational language teaching
          • suggestopedia
          • total physical response
    • Categorizing Methods
      • Three categories to classify methods:
          • Language-centered methods
            • concerned with linguistic forms/grammatical structures, seek to provide opportunities for learners to practice preselected and pre-sequenced structures of linguistics through form-focused exercises (ex. audio- lingual method)
          • Learner-centered methods
            • concerned with language use and learner needs, like the language centered method it provides opportunities to practice but also communicative functions as well through meaning focused exercises (ex. communicative method)
          • Learning-centered methods
            • concerned with learning processes, provide opportunities for learners to participate in open ended meaningful interaction through communicative activities or problem solving tasks during the class time (ex. natural approach)
    • Postmethod Pedagogy
      • 3 Parameters of Postmethod Pedagogy:
        • Parameter of Particularity
          • any language pedagogy needs to be relevant and sensitive to a particular group of teachers teaching a particular group of learners who are trying to attain a specific set of goals within a particular sociocultural atmosphere.
        • Parameter of Practicality
          • entails a teacher generated theory of practice meaning no theory of practice can be fully useful or useable unless it is generated through practice
        • Parameter of Possibility
          • individual identity, bringing language and cultures in contact
        • Turn to page 37
    • Postmethod Pedagogy
      • Macrostrategies of postmethod pedagogy (10 of them):
        • Maximize learning opportunities: teachers strike a balance between their role as managers of teaching acts and their role as mediators of learning acts
        • Minimize perceptual mismatches: recognition of potential perceptual mismatches between intentions and interpretations of the learner, the teacher, and the teacher educator
        • Facilitate negotiated interaction: meaningful learner-learner, learner-teacher interactions
        • Promote learner autonomy: helping learners learn how to learn
        • Foster language awareness: any attempt to to draw learners’ attention to the formal and functional properties of their L2
        • Activate intuitive heuristics: highlights the importance of providing rich textual data to internalize underlying rules governing grammatical usage and communicative use
        • Contextualize linguistic input: language usage and use are shaped by linguistic, extralinguistic, situational, and extrasituational contexts
        • Integrate language skills: integrate language skills traditionally separated and sequenced as listening, speaking, reading, and writing
        • Ensure social relevance: teachers need to be sensitive to the societal, political, economic, and educational environment in which L2 learning and teaching take place
        • Raise cultural consciousness: the need to treat learners as cultural informants so they are encouraged to participate in the classroom
    • The Pedagogic Wheel
      • Turn to page 41
      • the parameters function as the axle that connects and holds the center of the pedagogic wheel
      • the macrostrategies function as the spokes that join the pedagogic wheel to its center thereby giving the wheel stability and strength
      • the outer rim stands for language learning and language teaching
      • these components shape language learning and teaching through individual, institutional, social, and cultural factors
    • “ TESOL methods: Changing Tracks, Challenging Trends”
      • 3 Perceptible shifts in language teaching and learning:
        • 1. Communicative language teaching to task-based language teaching
        • 2. Method based pedagogy to postmethod pedagogy
        • 3. Systemic discovery to critical discourse
    • Why do you think there is a shift in these ideologies for language teaching and learning?
