Abstract

Approaches to Teaching the History of the English language: Pedagogy in Practice consists of commissioned chapters, each of which focuses on an issue relevant to teaching the History of the English language (HEL) in contemporary colleges and universities. The volume reads as a series of “master classes” taught by experienced instructors who explain the pedagogical challenges that inspired resourceful teaching practices. Although its chapters are authored by seasoned academics, many of whom are preeminent scholars in their individual fields, the book is designed for instructors at any career stage, beginners and veterans alike. In turn, the diverse profile of the book's contributors suggests how HEL, though a traditional curriculum, in fact serves as a cynosure for innovative and multidisciplinary scholarship.
