Abstract

We reflect here on research into the process of giving and receiving lesson-observational feedback for student teachers. Key questions and areas are:

•  How effective is post-lesson observation feedback in developing student teachers’ understanding of their own teaching?
•  Are there any issues to do with English subject knowledge?
•  What of the language issues involved?
•  What is the relationship between formative and evaluative aspects of such feedback?
•  How involved are the student teachers themselves, and what are their thoughts and feelings?
