This book maps out a new paradigm of teacher education an, by implication, professional education generally. The book opens with two alternative theories of teacher education and training and explains the concepts and assumptions on which they rest including beliefs about the nature and role of education in society. It then proposes a natural science paradigm and its implications for establishing a coherent view of teacher education. Subsequent chapters indicate the professional implications of such a model.
Jean McNiff urges teachers to develop and improve their own classroom practice by taking education research out of the confines of academia and conducting it themselves. Action Research is becoming increasingly important and useful. The author explains its philosophies and practices of action, illustrating her explanations with case studies of recent projects. She also reviews current trends in action research and examines key concepts in its development.
There is something special about writing with children. Jayne Moon's academic rigour and classroom experience inform every page of this book- but what shines through is a sense of privilege it is to participate in someone's learning at this stage in their lives. This is a practical handbook with lots of teaching suggestions - but it is also a source of inspiration.

Scott Thronbury's "Uncovering Grammar" is not a detailed descriptive analysis of English grammar. It is basically a new suggestion of how to view grammar and a discussion of the implications such a view would have for the EFL classroom. Weighing in a mere 122 pages, this is not a seriously heavy book. Thornbury proposes to see grammar not as an object of study, but as a process, much like as a verb rather than a noun. He also suggests the term "grammaring" to encompass this new concept of grammar. The entire book consistently links itself back to second language acquisition research, especially some of the more important findings. In fact, the book also serves well as an introduction to some key second language acquisition concepts and terminology.
"Grammar" provides the practising language teacher with a clear and straightforward overview of this complex subject. It describes the nature of grammar, its role in language learning and language use, and how it can be taught most effectively. Using examples from published materials, the book invites readers to apply these ideas in their own teaching. There is much of relevance for teachers working within both traditional and innovative syllabuses.
