What we say and do: Reflecting on our gaps (PP84), Paper
This presentation reports on a research project conducted with Omani school teachers, investigating their beliefs about paragraph writing, their self-reported pedagogical practice, and an analysis of their own writing. The goal of the presentation is to explore areas of tension which the data reveal, and to consider the value of reflective exercises such as those conducted in the research for positive professional development.
