It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Theory and Practice in EFL Teacher Education
Subtitle: Bridging the Gap
Edited By: Julia Hüttner
Barbara Mehlmauer-Larcher
Susanne Reichl
Barbara Schiftner
Series Title: New Perspectives on Language and Education

This volume addresses the complex issues surrounding language teacher
education, especially in EFL, and the development of professionalism in this
field. By applying such concepts as Shulman's "pedagogical content
knowledge", the development of teachers' knowledge base is investigated in a
variety of settings, thus underpinning the contextual nature of teacher learning.
The vital role of critical reflection at all stages of teacher development is shown
to be an integral part of language teachers' knowledge constructions in areas
such as pedagogical grammar, assessment and testing. The contributions shed
light also on the perception and development of teacher expertise. This volume
sets out to bridge the gap between theory and practice, and in so doing shows
that these constructs are far from monolithic. Rather, both theory and practice
are created and developed dynamically in close interrelation.
