Teacher Trainer: A Practical Journal for Those Who Train, Mentor;2012, Vol. 26 Issue 3, p7
This article is of interest to those who are responsible for organising teaching practice in TEFL in teacher training institutes. At Pázmány University, Hungary, student teachers are required to put together a Portfolio during their practicum. This is common practice. What is perhaps new is that, at this university, student teachers use a workbook which gives them specific guidelines for each part of their Portfolio. The Workbook includes observation task worksheets, and using these is the focal point of this article. The actual workbook is too long to reproduce here, but it is available at www.tttjournal.co.uk in the 'TTTJ Plus' section.
