"What kind of a flower is that?" A contrasting model for critiquing lessons Corrected version 2020

Fanselow, John

In 1980, Alan Maley, at the time the British Council Language Teaching Officer in Paris organized a conference in Paris on observation in English and Foreign Language classrooms with the Language Teaching Officer at the Goethe Institute. They invited 12 people who had written about classroom observation from the UK, France, Germany and the US. In 1982, the Goethe Institute published a book containing each of the presentations. My presentation was titled “What kind of a flower is that? In my presentation I descried a classroom observation system called FOCUS which had been published in the TESOL Quarterly in March, 1977 titled,“Beyond Rashomon—Conceptualizing and Describing the Teaching Act.”
