Let's Discuss: Second-Language Learners Share Ideas – Teacher's Edition

$ 59.70 USD

Whether English-language learners are younger or older, beginners or advanced,they likely have already tired of staged conversations about seeking directions or

ordering at a restaurant. Why not get them involved in authentic conversations with one another about issues that matter — issues that are worth talking about?
The program described in this book has been used successfully with teens across several countries in developing their critical thinking and writing skills by
engaging them in debate with their peers about significant issues, beginning with the personal and then extending to their communities, nation, and world. The features of the program and book make it ideal for use as a supplementary source for students learning English as a second language.
