Chapter: 3 The use of appraisal resources in the construction of second language teacher-researcher identity

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.21903


This chapter interprets the meanings of choices from the appraisal system made by a group of Colombian postgraduate students. It focuses on how these choices are used by these writers in the process of constructing for themselves a new identity as teacher-researchers. The appraisal resources considered to be of particular relevance in this process of identity construction are the resources of attitude and engagement.
