Description

Chapter 10 follows on from the previous chapter by outlining and discussing how novice teachers can continue their reflections in their first year which becomes especially important if they have no real induction program or mentor support and as a result, left to sink or swim. The chapter points out that novice ESL teachers can be helped through their challenging transition/praxis shock from the teacher education programs to the first year of teaching with the use of novice ESL teacher reflection groups so that they will swim and not sink.
