Discover ways in which teachers interpret and innovate research findings into actual classroom practice to create positive classroom transformations. Given the diversity of the contexts explored in this volume, the chapters are divided into three main sections with lessons taking place at the primary and middle school level, the lower- and upper-secondary school level, and the tertiary and university level. Discover new linguistic landscapes where English has been modified by societal changes and new technologies. Understand the emerging role of English as an international language and the importance of diverse perspectives in English teaching. Learn about research-based practices covering topics such as intercultural awareness, pragmatics, literature study, conceptual metaphors, and utilizing visual aids. Identify ways to prepare students in non-English-dominant contexts to meet their learning objectives.
