Communicating Identities is a book for language teachers who wish to focus on the topic of identity in the context of their classroom teaching. The book provides a set of interactive, practical activities for use in language classrooms in which students explore and communicate about aspects of their identities. It is a work for teachers who wish to find out more about the topic of learner and teacher identities in the context of their own professional development. The work provides an accessible introduction to research and theory on language learner and language teacher identity. All the practical activities include a follow-on teacher reflection in which teachers explore aspects of their own identity in relation to the learner identities explored in the activities. The communicative activities concern the various facets of the students’ own identities, and are practical resources that teachers can draw on to structure and guide the students’ exploration of their identities. The book introduces teachers to practical steps in doing exploratory action research so that they can investigate identity systematically in their own classrooms.
