Abstract


This study aimed at identifying the type of power relations in the inspector-teacher discursive discussion during an inspection visit. The data obtained from the critically analysis of a video-recorded speech of a discursive inspector-teacher discussion. The findings revealed that there were two types of power relations practiced by the inspector over his visited teacher, namely the power of authority and power of knowledge. These powers were usually accepted and rarely resisted by the teacher. Finally, the study recommended a training course for all inspectors of English to re-think of their inspecting job for helping teachers rather than terrifying them.

Author Keywords: School inspection, inspectors, EFL teachers, CDA.
