Overview

How would a restaurant reviewer critique an essay? How would a martial arts master facilitate language practice? How would a bartender create a supportive environment for learning? And how would a social activist promote critical thinking in the classroom? Answers to these questions and more can be found in chapters that offer practical tips from language teachers with extensive experience in other fields. It is a book full of surprises that translate into new ways of thinking about teaching and the classroom.
