* How do student teachers learn to teach? * How can experienced English teachers teach student teachers? * How can good English teachers continue to develop and improve? Developing English Teachers is a book for anyone interested in helping English teachers to develop and improve. Its main focus is on the ways in which experienced English teachers can support and develop student teachers and induct them into the profession. However it goes further than this to examine the idea of mentorship as a feature of continuing professional development and of professional development as a constant element in the life of a reflective practitioner. It examines how experienced English teachers can learn from the challenge of explaining their teaching to student and beginning teachers. It also examines how being a mentor is very different to being a class teacher and emphasizes the new areas of learning that such a role demands. The book shows how all participants can learn from this reflective cycle and improve their teaching and contribute to improving the quality of the English teaching profession.

Trainee teachers are expected to demonstrate reflective practice in many ways throughout their course. Unlike other texts, this book takes a focused look at what primary trainees need to know and offers specific and details guidance on how to be meaningfully reflective in learning and teaching. Examining reflection as a tool for both teachers and children, this text considers how teachers can encourage the children they teach to be reflective in their own learning and how this can improve learning and teaching. Chapters on lesson study and reflective journals offer practical guidance, and a chapter on using children's voice as a tool for reflection explores this popular topical theme. Case studies and activities are included to help the reader relate theory to practice and all chapters are linked to the 2012 Teachers' Standards. About the Transforming Primary QTS series This series reflects the new creative way schools are begining to teach, taking a fresh approach to supporting trainees as they work towards primary QTS. Titles provide fully up to date resources focused on teaching a more integrated and inclusive curriculum, and texts draw out meaningful and explicit cross curricular links.

The capacity to reflect – individually and with others – is considered valuable in teacher professional development internationally. In the field of Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language, reflective practice has been deemed to be a precious tool at the pre-service level and in the ongoing development of teachers. Despite the importance of teacher reflection, the field of Teaching English as a Foreign Language in Higher Education has tended to overlook this topic and especially its collaborative and emotional elements. This book proposes a new and practical model for engaging teachers in transformational learning through an ‘emotionalized’ version of reflection. More specifically, the Collaborative, Appreciative, Reflective Enquiry (CARE) model represents a guide for teachers who wish to engage in reflective practice alone and with others in an appreciative context. As such, this book will be invaluable to in-service language teachers and teacher educators who are committed to realizing their potential as educators and human beings through growth that only emancipatory reflection and positive emotionality can bring.
