- We can order this
In this comprehensive and detailed analysis of recent research on encouraging reflective practices in TESOL, Farrell demonstrates how this practice has been embraced within TESOL and how it continues to impact the field. Examining a vast array of studies through his own framework for reflecting on practice, Farrell's analysis comprises not only the intellectual and cognitive but also the spiritual, moral, and emotional aspects of reflection. Reflection questions at the end of each chapter provide a jumping-off point for researchers, scholars, and teachers to further consider and reflect on the future of the field. Providing a holistic picture of reflection, this book is an original compendium of essential research on philosophy and principles, instruments used in studies, and theory and practice.

"This is a highly useful addition to the resources available for trainers and teachers alike in this key area of teacher education. Particularly noteworthy is the consideration of teachers as 'whole persons' and not simply reflective technicians. 'The unexamined life is not worth living,' as Socrates is said to have claimed. This is nowhere more true than in the act of teaching, and at no time more relevant than in the present."
--Alan Maley, co-founder of The C Group-Creativity for Change in Language Education"The overall assessment of the volume's approach to its subject matter is very good. The way it introduces the parts of the book and moves from topic to the other is logical and makes sense for teachers and teacher trainers."
