MEDIA REVIEWS
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. -- Scott Thornbury
Gabriel Diaz Maggioli has produced 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 experience resonates throughout. -- Dr. Diane Larsen-Freeman, professor and researcher, University of Michigan
