Comments on Karen E. Johnson's "The Role of Theory in L2 Teacher Education." Reflective Experience as a Foundation for Intelligent L2 Teacher Education. The Author Responds...

TESOL Quarterly, v31 n4 p775-82 Win 1997
Schlessman notes that Johnson's article on role of theory in second language (L2) teachers' education opens a Pandora's box in attempting to determine what it means to have two forms of knowledge, conceptual and perceptual. Johnson argues that theory can transform practice only if teachers have varied opportunities to make sense of theory within the context of their own teaching and learning experiences.
