A functional model of language for language teacher education

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    ELTE in Australia involves student-teachers who will be working in a diverse range of ELT settings, both in Australia and in many international contexts. These student- teachers have assorted ELT experiences, including none at all, and come from various linguistic and cultural backgrounds. This chapter describes a particular unit of study that student-teachers take when enrolled in either a Graduate Certificate of TESOL or a Master of Applied Linguistics and TESOL course in an Australian university. This unit of study introduces student-teachers to a functional model of language based on SFL theory, SFG and genre theory and pedagogy.
