Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book examines the nature of language teacher development and what teachers need to know in order to be able to teach effectively. It explores different approaches to teacher training, and offers many practical suggestions for the kinds of activities that can be used in teacher training programs. It also surveys theory and research on second language teacher development. The text seeks to articulate a theoretical framework for the field of second language teacher education, as well as clarify some of the issues involved in designing and implementing pre-service and in-service teacher education programs. It is a book that can be read by teachers in MA or postgraduate courses, as well as teacher trainers in language schools and universities.

Synopsis:

This book examines the nature of second language teacher development.

Synopsis:

This thought-provoking book examines the nature of second language teacher development and how teachers' practices are influenced by their beliefs and principles.

Synopsis:

Beyond Training examines the nature of second language teacher development and how teachers' practices are influenced by their beliefs and principles. It seeks to move discussion of language teacher development beyond the level of "training," which reflects a technical view of specific teaching practices. Instead, it takes a more holistic approach to teacher development built on the notion of the teacher as critical and reflective thinker. The argument pursued throughout is that teacher education needs to engage teachers not merely in the mastery of techniques, but in an exploration of the knowledge, beliefs, and attitudes that underly their teaching practices.
