Trainee Teachers' Understanding of Content/Language Connections
Silver, Rita Elaine
Language Teaching Research, v12 n1 p105-123 2008
The developing understandings of teacher-trainees of language and content connections in "subject" teaching in Singapore's bilingual primary schools are explored in this article. I narrate the development of the project, the trainee responses, and my own reflections on the process. Throughout, I take an Exploratory Practice (Allwright, 2003) stance by attempting to understand teacher-trainee understanding, to adopt a more collegial attitude in the teacher-trainer/teacher-trainee relationship, and to integrate appropriate research methods with relevant teacher training activities.
