Atlanta, GA, October 31, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- New or experienced instructors will pick up techniques for teaching on all levels. Global TESOL, published by Globális Trendek, is an orientation into the profession of teaching English to speakers of other languages and a practical guide to developing and teaching courses and lessons anywhere across the globe.
Global TESOL has been the foundation for TESOL Certificate Programs at several universities and colleges, and is now available to any individual interested in teaching as an avocation, career, or just for the benefits of working in an exciting environment. It is a guide for the person who wants to be directly immersed in multiculturalism and hone skills in the art of language teaching: community, industrial and human resource directors; au pairs; social and political activists; any individual engaged in cultural issues, the education of adults or simply in making language accessible. The book provides down-to-earth strategies for planning and teaching, tips for handling difficult situations, and ideas to spark a teacher’s vision.
Author/educator Sarah Anne Shope draws on decades of experience of teaching people from nearly every country, on every experience level and background to learn how to hone a natural style of teaching while drawing from the human instinct for communication. “This guide is written so that you can use your desire to help your fellow humans and fortify yourself with confidence that you absolutely can do the job effectively,” Shope explains. “Beginning teachers learn techniques to organize classes, create meaningful lessons, and teach individuals or groups of people to use the language. The experienced teacher will find new ideas, a fresh attitude, and the freedom to put aside any old ways that often do nothing more than create barriers to learning.”
Though techniques and materials are essential – and they are addressed in the book – even more important are the two keys to good language teaching: 1) a grasp of the power of intrinsic motivation, and 2) skills in the facilitation of interactivity. The only other element needed is a passion to help others.
Global TESOL can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press Direct bookstore at www.OutskirtsPress.com/bookstore.
