Modeling the Social Construction of Knowledge in ELT Teacher Education.
Smith, Joye
ELT Journal, v55 n3 p221-27 Jul 2001
Reports on the ways in which one teacher's teaching of trainee-teachers was adapted to reflect the principles she wanted them to explore in relation to their own work. Drawing on Vygotsky's concept of relational imitation and Dewey's notion of learning through direct experience, suggests ways of challenging the transmission paradigm and incorporating constructivism within English language teacher education.
