Description

Drawing on the collective expertise of language scholars and educators in a variety of subdisciplines, the Handbook for Arabic Language Teaching Professionals in the 21st Century, Volume II provides a comprehensive treatment of teaching and research in Arabic as a second and foreign language worldwide. Keeping a balance among theory, research, and practice, the content is organized around 12 themes: * Trends and Recent Issues in Teaching and Learning Arabic * Social, Political and Educational Contexts of Arabic Language Teaching and Learning * Identifying Core Issues in Practice * Communicative Competence, Language Variation and Using Frames in Arabic Language Teaching and Learning * Arabic Programs: Goals, Design and Curriculum * Teaching and Learning Approaches: Content-Based Instruction and Curriculum * Arabic Teaching and Learning: Classroom Language Materials and Language Corpora * Assessment, Testing and Evaluation * Methodology of Teaching Arabic: Skills and Components * Teacher Education and Professional Development * Technology-Mediated Teaching and Learning * Future Directions The field faces new challenges since the publication of Volume I, including increasing and diverse demands, motives, and needs for learning Arabic across various institutions; a need for accountability and academic research given the growing recognition of the complexity and diverse contexts of teaching Arabic; and an increasing shortage of and need for quality of instruction. Volume II addresses these challenges. It is designed to generate a dialogue-continued from Volume I-among professionals in the field leading to improved practice, and to facilitate interactions, not only among individuals but also among educational institutions within a single country and across different countries.show more
