Research Project: Stigmatized ESL Teacher Talk!
ESL teachers, have you ever been told that you are speaking too much in class? What did you do about it? How did it make you feel?
Perhaps it would surprise you that ESL teacher talk should not be about the quantity of that talk. A new program, Quality Teacher Talk Training (QTTT) has been developed to focus on the real problem: A lack of discourse based training in most TESL training programs.
