Mohammad Nurul Islam


This study is designed to be an empirical study of the nature of the collaboration between three NESTs and three Taiwanese teachers of English (TTEs), who are NNESTs, in elementary schools in Taiwan. The aim of this study is threefold: (a) to explore the nature of collaborative teaching by NESTs and TTEs, (b) to look into the support structures that I might have been developed during the collaboration between NESTs and TTEs, and (c) to gain insights into the experiences of NESTs and TTEs in connection with collaborative teaching in elementary school classrooms. The author wishes to build up knowledge of the practice of collaborative teaching by NESTs and NNESTs and accordingly to make viable suggestions on improving collaborative teaching of this kind. Key words: Collaborative-teaching; Native English-speaking teachers (NESTs); Non-native English-speaking teachers (NNESTs)
