Not another English Book! Indeed, not at all. In this new and exciting text, Dave Hopkins has managed to make the leap from the same old tired textbook filled with the same old tired content, into an important new arena. Smooth Moves is not a text about content, grammar, and language utilization. Smooth Moves is not a "what to teach" textbook, it is an entry into what to do in the classroom, on a daily basis, to facilitate language acquisition.
Dave has put himself in the place of standing beside the classroom teacher, helping to find ideas, techniques, styles, games, and approaches (all "moves") that fit within a contextual paradigm setting the stage for students to use new language. It is a book that fills in that enormous gap for teachers who know the content but need help to bring the process alive. From entry warmers to setting the contextual framework to focusing on student - student interaction as a moving classroom force, you'll find Smooth Moves a great classroom companion.
