This book builds on work commenced by the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) in the United Arab Emirates, which nurtured a research culture and encouraged young professionals to evaluate practices in the workplace of teaching, the classroom. The current volume takes this further and features the work of mature and experienced teachers who use action research to examine problems and practices in a variety of situations through the prism of leadership and management. The book features two introductory chapters. The first highlights the importance of research for the academy, and in particular for the academies of the United Arab Emirates. The significance of research and publication for the development of quality in education is discussed. Similarly, the twin concerns of learning through investigation and the sharing of that learning through publication are emphasized. Chapter Two gives background to action research and identifies the small but growing body of work in this field in the United Arab Emirates. The particular relevance of action research to leadership and management in English language teaching is discussed, especially the learning capacity that this method of enquiry encompasses. Chapters Three to Ten feature the work of the local researchers. These chapters cover a variety of concerns which can be roughly grouped into management of classroom and teaching issues and broader educational leadership matters. Classroom management issues include making group work more effective, improving students’ out-of-class learning, improving students’ personal responsibility and attendance patterns, stimulating oral participation in class by students and improving student interactivity. The broad leadership matters explore issues of time management, understanding students and developing effective staff meetings. The book concludes with a short chapter of reflection by the eight researcher-authors, written twelve months after the original action research investigations. This section marks the book as special, as retrospective evaluation is rare in education. The chapter shows that the professional development, engagement and enrichment which result from action research are empowering qualities.

The Routledge Handbook of English Language Teaching is the definitive reference volume for postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students of Applied Linguistics, ELT/TESOL, and Language Teacher Education, and for ELT professionals engaged in in-service teacher development and/or undertaking academic study. Progressing from ‘broader’ contextual issues to a ‘narrower’ focus on classrooms and classroom discourse, the volume’s inter-related themes focus on: ELT in the world: contexts and goals planning and organising ELT: curriculum, resources and settings methods and methodology: perspectives and practices second language learning and learners teaching language: knowledge, skills and pedagogy understanding the language classroom. The Handbook’s 39 chapters are written by leading figures in ELT from around the world. Mindful of the diverse pedagogical, institutional and social contexts for ELT, they convincingly present the key issues, areas of debate and dispute, and likely future developments in ELT from an applied linguistics perspective. Throughout the volume, readers are encouraged to develop their own thinking and practice in contextually appropriate ways, assisted by discussion questions and suggestions for further reading that accompany every chapter.

The book, Teaching ELLs Across Content Areas: Issues and Strategies, is a unique, useful text written for K–12 teachers. This book is the culmination of the professional knowledge, expertise, and experience from the distinguished authors who represent the entire range of the content areas, including: language arts, science, mathematics, technology, arts, psychology, and Hispanic studies. The ELL school population has reached 5.3 million with the increase rate of 51 percent from School Year 19981999 to 20082009 (NCELA, 2012). By 2025, one out of four K12 students will be ELLs (NEA Policy Brief, 2013). The NEA data states that the ELLs are the fastestgrowing student population group in our schools and providing them with highquality services and programs is an important investment in America’s future (NEA Policy Brief, 2013). With the fast growth of the ELLs in schools, basic information and strategies are needed by all K12 teachers. This book provides useful information and strategies for all K12 teachers in content classrooms. This book has three significances. First, the book provides the most needed information for K12 teachers with issues and strategies that are important in content areas to help ELLs’ success. With the fast growth of the ELLs in schools, K12 teachers need this information in content classrooms. Second, the book fills the gap related to teaching ELLs in content areas. There are some existing books with titles on teaching ELLs across content areas; yet, these books provide general information with fewer books that really address specific content topics. This book is unique because it has the dedicated chapters for specific content areas, e.g., Language Arts, Science, Math, Social Studies with issues and strategies in these respective contents as well as general information, e.g., L2 theories for teachers to know and work with ELLs. Third, the book is readerfriendly with carefully crafted chapters. Each chapter begins with a scenario to catch the reader’s attention, is followed by issues and strategies, and ends with a summary. A scenario begins with each chapter for teachers to get to know the ELLs with the content that focuses on the related information and teaching strategies. With the continued increase in the ELL school population, this book is intended helping all K12 teachers in content areas have knowledge and strategies to better serve their ELLs.
