Abstract

Metaphor analysts have argued how our understanding of events and concepts is shaped consciously and/or unconsciously by metaphorical thinking or conceptual metaphorical images. There had been several in depth examinations concerning the part metaphors can play in educational research, especially in terms of improving individual teacher performance. It is interesting to see the use of metaphors to describe the role of teachers and its association with pedagogical practice. Understanding such association would help us to theorize the teachers’ current perspectives of teaching and learning. The use of metaphors could assist in understanding how things are seen and done which lead us further to looking at ways for pedagogic and classroom practice improvement as well as for professional development. This paper will present the categories of metaphors used by trainee teachers to signify their roles in language classrooms.
