Comments Reflective Teaching in Second Language Classrooms

  • Carmen

    Excellent accounts of how to teach and more importantly how to determine how to change instruction to meet needs. Each chapter had hints and check lists, activities and resources to aid in instruction. One thing I had not thought of until I read this is that there are teacher led classes and student led classes. I started out being teacher led, because that is what I experienced when I was in the classroom as a student. Each year I move more and more to the student led side.

    Great value at such a concise volume! More useful for beginner teachers. Good balance of theory Vs case study research.


  • Matthew

    This book contains some very good questions a second language teacher ought to be asking him or herself.


  • Roland

    An essential guide for anyone thinking of getting into the ESL teaching field.


  • Kat Becker

    I found this book to be typical of the frustrations I've had with many language education textbooks- lots of minituae about skills I would consider intuitive and/or commonsense.


  • Soumaya

    I recommend it to any teacher.
