Book: The Reflective Cycle of the Teaching Practicum

Chapter: Reflecting on the L2 Classroom Environment

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.37271


In this chapter the developing linguistic knowledge base of novice teachers is explored, including their awareness of the metalanguage and systems used to describe and classify the English language and English language use. It then highlights the processes by which student teachers can become more familiar with the target models of English taught in different contexts and settings and the identification and selection of suitable target English forms for L2 classroom pedagogy.
