Van Lier, L. (1996). Interaction in the Language Curriculum: Awareness, Autonomy & Authenticity. New York: Longman.
This book offers an innovative theory of language education
integrating curriculum practice, research and teaching. It emphasizes
the interdependence of knowledge and values and stresses the central
importance of learning as a social process. Van Lier argues that moral
as well as intellectual and practical principles must underlie curriculum
development and everyday teaching. He presents a coherent philosophical
theory as well as considering practical issues in implementation of
a new language curriculum.
