What is Recast

Handbook of Research on Training Teachers for Bilingual Education in Primary Schools
A widely used pedagogical practice consisting of offering feedback on error to facilitate students’ progress in their ability to use a second language. The teacher’s correct restatement of a learner’s incorrectly formed utterance offers an alternative model of the attempted production of the target form and recognizes the content of the previous turn.

CLIL Teachers' Beliefs and Practices: How Can Teacher Training Help?
Ruth Milla (University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), Spain) and Amaia Aguirregoitia Martínez (University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), Spain)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-6684-6179-2.ch007
This chapter presents the main aspects of a study conducted to explore existing beliefs and perspectives on CLIL-teaching specific practices and methodological aspects. The study aimed at identifying the educational practices accepted by CLIL experienced teachers and comparing them with prospective primary education teachers' underlying assumptions both before and after explicit instruction on CLIL based on experts' advice. The analysis of the results seems to indicate that instruction has modified students' beliefs and that specific training may contribute to the alignment of in-service teachers' praxis with the suggestions by experts in the field, in areas such as identifying problems in advance, using the learners' mother tongue, correcting language errors, using authentic materials, or presenting content. Interestingly, the answers of both teachers and students acknowledge the effectiveness of CLIL, although they reveal that appropriate qualification and training are a matter of concern that could benefit teachers greatly.
