The findings are based on a research method in which teachers were asked to respond to and comment upon five different descriptions of their approaches to English teaching. The text: contextualizes current debates about English teaching within the subjects contested history; provides a vehicle for teachers to reflect on their own practice and locate themselves within the debate; and opens up the debate on assessment practices within English teaching.
