Once the structure is established, it can become a platform for experimentation. Innovation is easier when everyone is starting from the same place. 2 Be selective. No matter how appropriate a coursebook for your programme, it is unlikely that all the activities, in the precise order presented, will be right for your learners. Within the broad structure of the book, decide what to use and what to leave out, replace, or come back to another time. 3 Use coursebooks as resource books. Many modern coursebooks include free standing activities, or coherent series of activities such as a story in episodes.

6 Give examples of multiple drafts. Learners can sometimes think that rewriting is just a matter of incorporating corrections and producing a clean copy. Help them to see that drafts are a useful way of developing content, too. 36 LANGUAGE WORK IN THE CLASSROOM 7 Accept that there will be many mistakes in early drafts. This is particularly the case for less proficient learners, of course. Help learners to see texts with lots of mistakes as a natural stage. Try to build up an atmosphere where peer as well as teacher feedback is seen as useful on the way to a final product.

11 Consider setting listening tasks for homework. If you are working in a well-resourced context, where your institution has plenty of tapes to lend and your learners have tape players at home, you can set them listening tasks to do outside the class. This gives them exposure to far more spoken input than they could get if all your listening tasks were confined to the classroom. 32 LANGUAGE WORK IN THE CLASSROOM 16 Teaching reading Reading is both a matter of quality and of quantity. Students need to learn the skills of target language reading, and they also need exposure to a rich variety of written texts.
