Book: Teachers Reflecting on Boredom in the Language Classroom
Chapter: Towards Reflective Practice with Respect to Boredom
Chapter Seven shows how identifying the causes of boredom, preventing and dealing with this negative emotion can provide a springboard for reflective practice in the L2 classroom (cf. Farrell, 2019; Farrell & Ives, 2015). In particular, specific examples of awareness-raising activities for teachers are proposed which can help the development of reflective teaching practices.
