De Abreu-E-Lima is an associate professor of English language and Literature at Federal University of Sao Carlos, in Brazil. Her research focuses on the use of multiple intelligences theory in teacher education and materials development. Luciana C. De Oliviera is assistant professor of literacy and language education in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at Purdue University, in the United States. Her research focuses on the development of academic literacy in the content areas, second language writing, and nonnative English-speaking professionals in TESOL. Eliane H. Augusto-Navarro has been a professor of English at Federal University of Sao Carlos, in Brazil, for 5 years. She holds Ph. D. in linguistics and a master?s degree in applied linguistics. Her research interests involve the teaching and learning of EFL grammar, TESOL teacher education, EFL writing, and English for specific purposes. The writers conducted a study to improve the quality of pre-service teacher education in Brazil by offering a new curriculum for the undergraduate programs in language and literature at Federal University of Sao Carlos. The researchers proposed something new to the Brazilian education system where they integrate the teaching of language skills and the teaching knowledge from the get go. However, this controversial idea proved to be effective to increase the competence of English teachers.
