The current move to school-based mentoring offers the possibility of considerable improvement over traditional arrangements for initial teacher preparation. But this opportunity will only be realized if old assumptions about theory and practice are modified and new practices based on a better understanding of ways in which effective teaching may be acquired. Starting from the assumption that practising teachers already possess many resources relevant to mentoring, Understanding Mentoring offers practical strategies and programmes for mentoring in the context of recent work on intelligent skill development, professional thinking and learning, counselling and helping strategies, and the nature and assessment of teaching competence. It should therefore be a useful resource for teachers taking on a mentoring role, and for those engaged in training and academic courses on school-based teacher education.

The capacity to reflect – individually and with others – is considered valuable in teacher professional development internationally. In the field of Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language, reflective practice has been deemed to be a precious tool at the pre-service level and in the ongoing development of teachers. Despite the importance of teacher reflection, the field of Teaching English as a Foreign Language in Higher Education has tended to overlook this topic and especially its collaborative and emotional elements. This book proposes a new and practical model for engaging teachers in transformational learning through an ‘emotionalized’ version of reflection. More specifically, the Collaborative, Appreciative, Reflective Enquiry (CARE) model represents a guide for teachers who wish to engage in reflective practice alone and with others in an appreciative context. As such, this book will be invaluable to in-service language teachers and teacher educators who are committed to realizing their potential as educators and human beings through growth that only emancipatory reflection and positive emotionality can bring.

* How do student teachers learn to teach? * How can experienced English teachers teach student teachers? * How can good English teachers continue to develop and improve? Developing English Teachers is a book for anyone interested in helping English teachers to develop and improve. Its main focus is on the ways in which experienced English teachers can support and develop student teachers and induct them into the profession. However it goes further than this to examine the idea of mentorship as a feature of continuing professional development and of professional development as a constant element in the life of a reflective practitioner. It examines how experienced English teachers can learn from the challenge of explaining their teaching to student and beginning teachers. It also examines how being a mentor is very different to being a class teacher and emphasizes the new areas of learning that such a role demands. The book shows how all participants can learn from this reflective cycle and improve their teaching and contribute to improving the quality of the English teaching profession.
