About This Book
Do you want to improve your teaching practice? Do you need to know more about getting the most out of student feedback? This textbook covers all topics in preparing TESOL teachers for the practical component of their programme. Covering both the theory of reflective practice and practical techniques, this book explains the cycle of observation, planning and materials, teaching, feedback, and action. By encouraging this teaching practice cycle and raising your awareness, you will learn the practical ways in which these activities can improve your teaching performance. Activities which focus on your own knowledge and experiences are included in each chapter, alongside a selection of further reading. The real data used, including classroom interaction and feedback discourse, come from a range of different cultural contexts. On-going professional development and practice-based and action research are also explained.
