Coteaching and Other Collaborative Practices in the EFL/ESL Classroom
With this volume, the editors’ goal is to offer an accessible resource, long-awaited by educators whose individual instructional practice and/or institutional paradigm shifted to a more collaborative approach to language education. Through this collection of chapters, the contributing authors closely examine ESL/EFL coteaching and other collaborative practices by:
(a) exploring the rationale for teacher collaboration to support ESL/EFL instruction,
(b) presenting current, classroom-based, practitioner-oriented research studies and documentary accounts related to co-teaching, co-planning, co-assessing, curriculum alignment, teacher professional development, and additional collaborative practices, and
(c) offering authentic teacher reflections and recommendations on collaboration and co-teaching.
