Summary Teachers as Course Developers uses a unique case study approach to show how language teachers themselves - rather than curriculum specialists - develop and implement their own courses. Featured are the stories of six teachers who successfully designed their courses in different settings in Japan, the United States, and Latin America. The book provides a framework for the processes of course development which any teacher can use in planning his or her own courses. Each chapter highlights a different aspect of the framework based on the particular teacher's approach and examines how that teacher utilized or departed from the framework in order to meet the challenges of a particular situation. A set of tasks and discussion questions follows each narrative. An annotated bibliography is also included
