The Routledge E-Modules on Contemporary Language Teaching
Modules in the Routledge E-Modules on Contemporary Language Teaching series are short, easily accessible introductions to a variety of issues that form the foundation of language-teacher knowledge and practice: the nature of language and communication, second language acquisition, interactive tasks, assessment, focus on form, vocabulary development, technology in language teaching, among many others.
- Language (Bill VanPatten)
- Communication and Skill (Bill VanPatten)
- Second Language Acquisition: The Basics (Gregory D. Keating)
- Focusing on Form in Language Instruction (Wynne Wong and Daphnée Simard)

Each module serves as a self-contained unit to be used on its own or as part of an introductory course on language teaching. Instructors may “mix and match” modules to create their own readings for a course on language teaching. The modules may serve as primary reading or as supplemental reading, with each module offering points of reflection, discussion questions, self-quizzes, and a reading list for those who wish to delve further into the topic.
