Presented in an engaging and stimulating manner, Case Study Analysis in the Classroom: Becoming a Reflective Teacher provides beginning teachers a variety of typical classroom problems to analyze and solve.

More than a book of cases, it is an important starting point for students learning about case study research, especially the analysis of cases and their potential uses in the classroom. In addition, readers will also be guided through the process of reflective problem solving, developing an educational philosophy, and writing their own case studies.

An increasing number of educators are arguing for conceptually sound reflective or inquiry-oriented teacher education programs. The argument is based on the fact that reflective teaching is possible and the belief that teachers should develop habits of consciously informed action. Those who promote reflective teaching argue for teacher empowerment within a self-renewing profession. Reflective Teacher Education offers case studies from seven universities that have organized teacher education programs around the concept of reflection. The cases represent public and private institutions, and alternative and traditional models of teacher preparation. The studies represent efforts to transform the entire professional education component rather than individual courses or isolated strategies. The volume also considers reflection as a conceptual orientation, commenting on its power to inform and improve teacher education, and assessing the implementation of reflection in these specific programs. The six critiques raise intriguing questions about the possibility and desirability of reflective reform efforts by viewing the cases from varying perspectives--development, cognitive, feminist, social reconstructionist, and post-modern.

The notion of the teacher as "reflective practitioner" is gaining ground as a powerful concept in teacher education and teacher development. One of the strengths of this approach is that it draws on the experience of a wide range of professions. Another is that it can help break down the gap between theory and practice that is all too often a major source of criticism of teacher education courses. The concept of the reflective practitioner can be applied to many aspects of teacher education including teacher supervision, teaching practice, microteaching, action research, groupwork, teacher assessment, and course design. Training Foreign Language Teachers deals with this important topic in a very lucid and straightforward way. It contains many suggestions for practical work and discussion, and numerous applications to actual situations, including an extended case study. The activities are firmly placed within the framework of a coherent approach to language teacher education. This book is aimed at anyone in the area of foreign language teaching who is engaged in designing, running or taking part in any of the following kinds of professional activities: teacher education courses, in-service training courses, supervision or inspection programs, advisory programs for teachers, staff development programs, and self-development programs. Training Foreign Language Teachers will be ideal as a core-text for MA courses with a teacher education focus.
