The 2b Practice reports bring together evidence from a qualitative observation study of English language teaching (ELT) aspects in a sample of EIA lessons. The lessons analysed for this study were conducted by teachers who were participating in the pilot phase of the EIA intervention and had undergone English in Action (EIA) training for nine months. The third 2b Practice report (Report 3) provides an account of a small number of 'cases' with the intention of showing how particular lessons were implemented. These synopses of the observations, in the form of seven case studies (four Primary and three Secondary), pick out the features of the lessons and relate these to a communicative approach to teaching and learning, which underlies the EIA approach to ELT.
