College-level students of postsecondary language and teaching will find REMAPPING THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE CURRICULUM: AN APPROACH THROUGH MULTIPLE LITERACIES provides an important, in-depth coverage studying multiple genres from popular to elite to understand different frameworks for communication. Swaffar and Arens propose using template-generated exercises to lead students from basic grammar patterns to different languages' meaning and cultural usage, providing exercises which smoothly transition students from the use of tense and narrative to realizing different curricular objectives.
