Beyond the Textbook: An Insight Into Curriculum Integration and Project Work in the Language Classroom

Oscar Zuluaga Hurtado


This paper aims at raising awareness among language teachers concerning the potential work that may be carried out in English classes departing form textbook illustrations. It supports the workshop given on the topic, trying to put together the ideas carried out during the presentation and the discussion with the attendants. It looks at possibilities for School Curriculum and English Language Integration. The departure point is a unit of Blundel's Task Listening (Unit 10). It is also a call for a more fruitful use of textbooks and materials in order to enhance classroom performance and to broaden the students' scope of learning and reinforce other topics through the foreign language class.
