Summary "A Practicum in TESOL is a valuable source book for both teacher educators and classroom teachers. It ranges widely across key areas of practice - from the nitty-gritty of lesson planning and classroom management, through conceptual areas such as motivation and observation, to crucial if more abstract aspects, such as teachers' beliefs and values. It also delves into the moral and political dimensions of teaching. Discussion of these areas, though well-grounded in relevant academic literatures, is also supported by extensive quotes from real teachers working on their practice. The treatment is sufficiently challenging to interest the experienced teacher, while covering matters of basic practice that would be of concern to the beginner." "Anyone doing a TESOL practicum will want to use this book - whether as an in-service teacher or as a teacher longing to further his or her professional development. A Practicum in TESOL can be used individually or in groups."--BOOK JACKET
