Focus on the Teacher

Average: 1 (1 vote)

Published in 1981, this slim volume is concerned with helping teachers to develop the commitment to and capacity for professional development.


In her introduction, Gillian Marsh explains that the chapters that follow do not promote ‘modular, pre-packed solutions’. The contributors focus on different aspects of the teacher training process. Some look at specific methodologies and technologies for the ELT classroom; others at training design; and others at exploring teacher attitudes and motivation. From the latter come recommendations to trainers to use peer feedback and group counselling, and to take account of the affective needs of teachers.
