Designed for pre-service teachers and teachers new to the field of ELT, Volume II of the What English Language Teachers Need to Know set covers the three main facets of teaching: planning, instructing, and assessing. Updated with new research throughout, the focus throughout is on outcomes, that is, student learning. The texts work for teachers across different contexts; different levels, and different learning purposes. The Second Edition has expanded to address corpus-based data, new technologies, and a wider range of contexts.
