The "My Share" articles in The Language Teacher can be a valuable resource for teacher development and lesson planning. However, it is important to critically examine the teacher beliefs and attitudes that underlie these lessons. I will discuss an excerpt of my critical discourse analysis of six years of My Share activities, focusing on two issues: first, some implications (especially on the issues of power and autonomy) of the difference in lexicogrammatical representation of students and teacher, and second, what the structure of the activities (group/individual and cooperative/competitive) says about our collective attitude towards language teaching.
