Title: Professional Encounters in TESOL
Subtitle: Discourses of Teachers in Teaching
Edited By: Sue Garton
Keith Richards
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=280618
Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Professional and Organizational Discourse
Description:

Professional Encounters in TESOL investigates the developing discourses of
English Language teachers in a variety of international contexts. By
analysing how professional development takes place through participation in
professional discourse, the chapters shed light on what teachers do and why
they do it.

The book is organised in four sections, reflecting the stages in an English
language teacher’s career: ‘Starting Out’ focuses on initial teacher
training, ‘Becoming Experienced’ looks inside their classroom, ‘New
Horizons’ shifts the perspective to the professional development of
experienced teachers, and ‘Passing on Knowledge’ investigates the
discourses of experienced teachers as they contribute to the professional
development of their peers. Each section is followed by reflections on the
chapters written by a teacher from an international context at the
particular stage in their professional development reflected in the section.

The book should have particular appeal to all those working in the area of
teacher development and will also be of interest to practising teachers.
