Every day, teachers in a variety of settings are asked to reflect on and support their classroom choices. While we generally think of this as choosing content and activities, teachers are also making choices related to feedback and not only what constitutes an error. but also, if and how to correct these errors. This small-scale study had teachers self-examine their oral corrective feedback choices of student pronunciation errors by completing a survey. The questions pertained to identifying classroom practices regarding oral corrective feedback (OCF) but also included questions on the teachers’ own language learning histories. The study is viewed from a linguistic identities perspective to critically examine the role(s)—if any—language teacher identities (LTI), specifically what Varghese (2017) calls identities in practice, have in shaping classroom OCF decisions.
