About the book



Teaching Unplugged is the first book to deal comprehensively with the approach in English Language Teaching known as Dogme ELT. It challenges not only the way we view teaching, but also the way we view being a teacher. Dogme ELT advocates teaching ‘unplugged’: • materials-light • conversation-driven • focusing on the learner and on emergent language Teaching Unplugged contains three distinctive parts which focus in turn on theory, practice and development: Part A provides a detailed explanation of the core principles behind Dogme ELT and examines the philosophy behind teaching unplugged. It invites teachers to reflect on the best way to learn a language and, consequently, to teach it. Part B contains a bank of activities that teachers can use right away and which help them ‘unplug their teaching’ from the start. These activities involve little or no preparation, often requiring no more than pen, paper and the people in the room. The tips, techniques and key terms suggested facilitate a new approach to teaching. Part C reflects on the application of Dogme ELT to different teaching contexts and addresses some of the issues and implications involved in where and how Dogme may be applied. It indicates how the approach works equally well for native and non-native speakers of English and how to teach unplugged in a wide range of different classroom environments.
