Students offers a comprehensive approach to using role play and
discussion to build language experiences that are meaningful for
learners. It explores issues around storytelling, silent speech,
writing and imagination and shows teachers how to be effective
observers and support the deeper meaning that comes from working
inside and outside the text. This authoritative resource is full of
simple strategies and texts that have been chosen for their ability
to engage students, get them out of their chairs, and let them
learn actively and socially. The strategies begin with simple games
and evolve into more complex learning opportunities. Working

great place to start. Highly readable anecdotes from real
