Recipes for Success in Foreign Language Teaching

Ready-Made Activities for the L2 Classroom

Katharine N. Harrington & Tina Ware (eds.)
University of Maine, Oklahoma Christian University

Much like a collaborative cookbook is a collection of best-loved recipes, “Recipes for Success in Foreign Language Teaching: Ready-made Activities for the L2 Classroom” is a collective volume of fifty teaching strategies, activities and ready-made lessons from language educators from all over the world. The lessons, both traditional and contemporary, are teachers’ personally developed and road tested second language classroom activities that will benefit all French and Spanish instructors. An eclectic mix of instructional approaches, the “recipes” address common beginnerlevel lessons such as the teaching of verb tenses and other common grammar points, and essential target language vocabulary. It includes three categories of lessons and activities: those designed specifically for French classes, for Spanish classes or those that can easily apply to either language. Each “recipe” includes an introduction to the activity and an explanation of how to implement it in a classroom context. The activities are clearly described and user-friendly with step-by-step instructions written in a straightforward manner. In many cases, teachers are even able to photocopy flashcards, handouts, games, and images directly out of the book for their own classroom use. This volume is designed as an everyday tool to complement any language teachers’ lesson planning.
