Description
TEACHING ENGLISH ACROSS CULTURES
This course is designed to introduce students to the ideologies and cultures of learning, teaching and living in countries where English is taught as a second or foreign language. The course will focus the roles of students and teachers, types of literacy, the role of gender, the influence of political and religious authority, educational policy, and classroom culture. We will also include the issue of identity, the construct of 'native speaker of English' and the 'non-native English-speaking' teacher.
