    About this book

This book approaches teacher training from aspects such as classroom observation, teaching theories, methods and thinking of language teaching, aiming at improving teachers' ability in self-reflection, self-inquiry and self-evaluation, making it an effective means to promote teachers' professional development. There are altogether nine chapters in the book: approaches to classroom investigation in teaching; exploring teachers' beliefs; focus on the learner; teacher decision making; the role of the teacher; the structure of a language lesson; interaction in the second language classroom; the nature of language learning activities; language use in the classroom. Each chapter poses some questions to stimulate readers' further reflection on the topics discussed. Each chapter ends with some suggestions for readers to conduct follow-up activities, such as journal writing, peer observation, classroom surveys, action research, etc.
