Monaghan considers the mainstream classroom as a site for language learning. He provides a historical, social and political account of current policy and outlines how teachers and teaching, learners and learning are conceptualized in policy. The chapter considers what teacher professional knowledge and skills are involved in working with students learning English as an additional language (EAL) and issues relating to teacher collaboration, pedagogy and knowledge.
