Pragmatics in ELT Pedagogy   The Center for Advanced Language Proficiency Education and Research (CALPER) at the Pennsylvania State University is one of fifteen Title VI Language Resource Centers (LRCs) in the United States which are funded by the U.S. Department of Education.

CALPER's particular focus is to improve the environment of advanced-level foreign language teaching and learning, and assessment.

 Dear Sankarakumar  

I found interesting your plan and presentation of the technology of teaching. It is indeed very clean and clear blueprint who will do what and how it would be applied and what would be its outcome in class. Yet Sankarakumar I am slightly skeptical about Blooms taxonomy when in reality we decide the pragmatic pedagogy to train ELTs or ElT students. If you could just take one frame of your whole blueprint of lesson plan i.e. "Introduction to Communication" then we would like to have from you how you have set this frame into small segments for discourse and to be interactive with students and finally inserting in it the Webskills, because when we frame small units of one of the sub-frames then it also stimulates teacher/supervisor/ program planner/teacher as co-learner to enrich himself first how he would respond to his own thought -process while planning his little units of communication in the class. I request you to first decide your action plan for each sub-frame and then your response to your steps will disseminate the learning skills on the part of the learner. I hope I may have made you understand the reality of pragmatics in the ELT pedagogy as well as heuristics of language application skills.

 With regards

Dr. Jayshree Singh
