Overview

Teaching Language Teachers: Scaffolding Professional Learning provides an updated view of as well as a reader-friendly introduction to the field of Teaching Teachers, with special reference to language teaching. By taking a decidedly Sociocultural perspective, the book addresses the main role of the Teacher of Teachers (ToT) as that of scaffolding the professional learning of aspiring teachers. Each of the eight chapters deals with a particular view of this scaffolding process, from understanding and reviewing the learning needs of aspiring teachers, to designing and delivering courses and materials, observing teachers, teaching online and engaging in continuous professional development. Authoritatively written, though accessible to newcomers to the field, this book will prove to be an invaluable addition to the library whether you are a seasoned teacher educator, a new coordinator, director of studies, supervisor or teacher trainer.

Editorial Reviews

Dr. Diane Larsen-Freeman
Gabriel Diaz Maggioli hasproduced a real tour de force on language teacher education. He treats a number of key issues in a most accessible manner. And a voice of considerable experienceresonates throughout.
Scott Thornbury
Gabriel Diaz Maggioli’s latest book not only offers a coherent framework for teacher education, adaptable to a range of contexts (including online teacher training) but fleshes it out with hands-on, practical procedures, exemplified from the author’s own extensive practice in the field. Moreover, by firmly situating teacher education within a sociocultural paradigm and making a convincing case for a ‘participate and learn’ methodology, Diaz Maggioli has helped align the discourse of language teacher education with current educational theory in general.
