Two years ago while I was editing an IATEFL Culture and Literature SIG magazine in Hungary I came across the work of Rose Senior. This powerpoint presentation, classroom metaphors, is based on her book “The Experience of Language Teaching” which won the Ben Warren prize in 2005. http://www.ihes.com/warren/winner_05.html
We have been in regular touch since and had the pleasure to accompany her to classrooms in Budapest in the autumn of last year. Rose had the same PdD supervisor as one of my tutors at Lancaster on my MA in 1991/2, Mike Breen and we found that we had much in common. Many of the quotes are taken from the teachers that Rose interviewed and the images were added by me.
