How will you, the teacher trained in student-centred methods, react to the arrival in your class of teacher-centred students? If you find this is a challenging, even perhaps a troubling prospect, what will you do? Marilyn Lewis' book, with its clear and affirmative advice for fellow-teachers in this predicament, will help you to understand and appreciate the cultural and educational dilemmas that are confronting your students and impeding their acquisition of a second language. Using Student-Centered Methods with Teacher-Centered ESL Students will give you ideas about the selection of language for attention, about individual differences in learning, about giving students a sense of progress and, in many cases, about the cultural aspects of learning in a new country. It will also help you to build on the many assets that these students bring to your classroom as, with your help and support, they gradually become independent learners.
