Designed for pre-service teachers and teachers new to the field of ELT, What English Teachers Need to Know I and II are companion textbooks organized around the key question: What do teachers need to know and be able to do in order for their students to learn English? The focus throughout is on outcomes, that is, student learning.

Volume I, on understanding learning, provides the background information that teachers need to know and be able to use in their classroom:

the characteristics of the context in which they work

how English works and how it is learned

their role in the larger professional sphere of English language education

Volume II, on facilitating learning, covers the three main facets of teaching:

planning

instructing

assessing

The texts work for teachers across different contexts (countries where English is the dominant language, one of the official languages, or taught as a foreign language); different levels (elementary/primary, secondary, college or university, or adult education), and different learning purposes (general English, workplace English, English for academic purposes, or English for specific purposes).

This was a required textbook for our class. It came just in time before my class started. The book is very informative and gives a good overview of what ESL/EFL teaching is about. I like the vignettes at the beginning of each chapter and reflective questions it has throughout the book.
Andriodtargeted
Full of useful information.

This book is quite useful for a teacher new to the ESL/EFL field who might feel underprepared pedagogically. It is also a good review for a new teacher to see if he/she has adequate foundational knowledge. The book mainly has strengths with very few weaknesses.

I have not seen Vol. II yet, but I think it would be worth it because it deals with the application of the concepts in Vol. I. Together they would cover a lot of breadth on the subject with a reasonable amount of depth.
