In a Nutshell Series

In a Nutshell is a series of short posts where I try to explain some key concepts in language teaching and learning. I will introduce those concepts in the fewest possible words; therefore, do not expect the explanations to be deep and extensive. The idea is to present terms and theories in simple words and, hopefully, give my readers a head start into studying something new.

Are there any terms in language education that you would like me to post here? Send me a message and I will write about it.

  • Critical literacy
  • Multimodal Texts

  • Disciplinary literacy
