Ideas in Action:
 Activities for Mediation provides language teachers with solid grounding in the theory
of mediation, as defined in the latest update to the CEFR, as well as a wide variety of mediation tasks
with clear aims and staging. This book aims to show not only why mediation is an important element in
any 21st century language classroom, but how to actually integrate it in your teaching immediately. With
this in mind, the book includes ideas as to how you can scaffold mediation strategies, how to create your
own mediation activities, and how to assess mediation.
