Constructing ICD: #10 Let’s talk about feelings in the newcomer ESOL classroom!

Constructing ICD #7The next issue of Constructing intercultural Dialogues is now available, “Let’s talk about feelings in the newcomer ESOL classroom!” by Luis Javier Pentón Herrera. He’s done research on his own class of English for Students of Other Languages, and reports findings that should be helpful to anyone else teaching a similar course. As a reminder, the goal of this series is to provide concrete examples of how actual people have managed to organize and hold intercultural dialogues, so that others may be inspired to do the same. As with other CID series, these may be downloaded for free. Click on the thumbnail to download the PDF.

The Center for Intercultural Dialogue publishes a series of short briefs describing Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue. Different people, working in different countries and disciplines, use different vocabulary to describe their interests, yet these terms overlap. Our goal is to provide some of the assumptions and history attached to each concept for those unfamiliar with it. As there are other concepts you would like to see included, send an email to the series editor, Wendy Leeds-Hurwitz. If there are concepts you would like to prepare, provide a brief explanation of why you think the concept is central to the study of intercultural dialogue, and why you are the obvious person to write up that concept.
