DOI: 10.1558/equinox.27744


Chapter 9 discusses how novice ESL teachers can be empowered through the use of reflective practice both in teacher education programs (the focus of the chapter) and during their first year (the focus of the following chapter). Specifically, the chapter outlines in detail how novice teachers can receive instruction in how to engage in systematic and structured reflection by using a framework for reflecting on practice that has five stages or levels of reflection: philosophy of practice, principles of practice, theory of practice, practice, and beyond practice.
