Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Curriculum innovations succeed or fail according to the extent to which teachers, and to some extent students, feel that they are meaningfully involved in the process of change. For change to be effective, it cannot be simply imposed from above; rather it depends absolutely on the people who implement it. The innovations described in this book have all resulted in improvements in the quality of language education and in opportunities for the students.

The chapters in this volume cross a variety of educational contexts in countries around the world, including Brazil, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, and the United States. Some programs were built where no program existed before, whereas others arose because developers looked critically at existing programs and decided to rebuild from the base up. Yet there is a unifying theme that runs through all chapters: The importance of one of more people with a strong vision of what the program might be, as well as effective communication among the various stakeholders, cannot be overemphasized.
