Analysis of English Teachers’ Roles as Facilitators and Leading Strategies in a Professional Book Discussion Group

Chin-Wen Chien


This study analyzes five elementary school English teachers’ roles as facilitators and their leading strategies in an English teachers’ learning community in a suburban elementary school in northwest Taiwan. Based on the thematic data analysis of interview, document and observation fieldnotes, this study has the following major findings. These participants aspired to be facilitators, but their lack of linguistic competence and leading strategies in the design and delivery of content made them more like sharers. Luckily, other participating teachers’ support and engagement helped them to be more like facilitators. Suggestions for effectively leading a teacher study group are provided.
