What we talk about when we talk about best practices: Choosing materials
from By: Debra Josephson Abrams
From March 26:
In previous articles, we have explored best practices in curricula, methods and approaches, and multiple instructional approaches. In this article, we will examine how to choose materials. Learner autonomy is connected to motivation. If a curriculum does not use materials relevant to learners, their motivation can — at best — lag. Gail K. Oura, David Nunan, Jerry G. Gebhard and many others make a powerful case for curriculum to use authentic materials.
