Second language teacher education: a sociocultural perspective


The following is a review of one book which has inspired my own research and reflections towards L2 teacher learning, L2 student learning and all the complexities of the L2 teacher education enterprise.

Johnson, K. E. (2009). Second language teacher education : a sociocultural perspective. New York: Routledge.

This book gives us a comprehensive view of the epistemological underpinnings of sociocultural theory in the field of second language teacher education. Second language teacher education : a sociocultural perspective provides the reader with an understanding of L2 teaching, L2 learning and teacher professional development. This text fills in a gap in the literature of second language teacher education contributing to the understanding of teacher learning and L2 teacher education. The reading of this book is pleasant and thought provoking. It makes you reflect on L2 teacher education connecting the cognitive and social dimensions of such a complex activity.
