Summary: "From the Classroom: Grounded Activities for Language Learning is a resource book of activities for a wide range of language programs. Core and immersion French, English as a Second Language (ESL) for children and adults, heritage and international languages, academic, workplace, and vocational programs, are just some of the situations that teachers in Canada face daily. No language activity can cross such boundaries without adaptation at some level and a careful consideration of context. For these reasons, we believe that it is important for the theoretical rationale behind classroom ideas to be explicitly presented to enable teachers to decide whether an activity is suitable for a particular teaching situation.Summary: Nous avons donc tenté d'aider les enseignants à identifier les activités appropriées à leurs programmes et à en adapter d'autres. Dans ce but, nous avons identifié les objectifs principaux pour chacune des activités suggérées, et offert des adaptations afin que ces activités puissent servir pour une large variété de programmes. Nous espérons que les enseignants en exercice trouveront que ces suggestions élargissent leur répertoire d'activités utiles. » (Preface / Préface, p. vi-vii)
