The Art of Teaching Italian

A comprehensive overview of contemporary Italian pedagogy from an international perspective blends empirical research with practical strategies for teachers

In recent years, teachers of Italian, like most world languages, have faced many changes to the teaching and learning landscape, including new teaching mediums, different expectations for enrollments, and a vivid awareness of social issues in the classroom. Teachers must now navigate effective language teaching practices and integrate important new topics and approaches.

The Art of Teaching Italian brings together experts from around the world in Italian language pedagogy, applied linguistics, and second-language acquisition to address the field's most pressing concerns and challenges with examples from creative teaching. Featuring contributions on a wide range of topics, including DEI issues, remote learning, and experiential learning, this edited volume blends empirical research with practical strategies and recommendations for teachers, centering the teaching of secondary and post-secondary Italian language and culture.

The Art of Teaching Italian shows that it is possible to enhance Italian language learning through creativity and ingenuity and to lead students to intercultural competence, a crucial skill in a globalized world.

Reviews

"This vibrant collection takes the pulse and temperature of Italian language and culture as an academic discipline today. Spanning the broad array of curricular, pedagogical, and sociohistorical challenges that world languages instructors must address, the authors collectively provide theoretical perspectives and practical strategies to meet students' needs, foster their growth, and engage them in learning processes that are accessible, career-enhancing, and community-focused in different ways."—Colleen M. Ryan, professor of Italian, Indiana University, Bloomington
