Teacher stance as reflected in feedback on student writing: An empirical study of secondary school teachers in five countries.
International Review of Applied Linguistics, 45 (1).
||This study examines the feedback practices of 110 EFl teachers from five different countries (Cyprus, France, Korea, Spain, Thailand) working in secondary school contexts. All provided written feedback on the same student essay. A coding scheme was developed to analyse the feedback on two axes: the stance the teachers took and the focus of their feedback. The study shows that most teachers react as language teachers, rather than as readers of communication, and they overwhelmingly focus on grammar, assuming a Provider stance, in which the teacher provides the correct form rather than requires the student to do part of the work themselves.
