Summary expansion
Group Work in the English Language Curriculum explores how using small groups in second language classrooms supports language learning. The book asserts that both language and learning are first and foremost social, and therefore when analyzing classroom activity, it is crucial to focus on the social interactions among students and teachers. Chappell's experience as a language teacher equips him to present a clear, evidence-based argument for the powerful influence group work has upon shaping the opportunities for learning, and how it should therefore be an integral part of every language lesson. This book will be of great interest to all language teachers and students of language teaching, as well as those researching in the field of language education and second language learning
