Teachers' Stories: Expanding the Boundaries with the Participatory Approach.
Hewitt, Lee; And Others
Compiled by a group of teachers new to the English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) field, this volume contains writing samples from teachers involved in the participatory approach to ESL classroom instruction. Introductory notes by Lee Hewitt cite the participatory approach as the most compelling method for teaching ESL adult learners. The "teaching stories" presented in this volume are as follows: "Social Issues in the Classroom" (Lucille Fandel) about housing, substance abuse prevention, and talking to social workers; "Talking about AIDS" (Kathy Brucker) about student concerns and reactions, women and AIDS, teaching issues, other issues, and AIDS information resources; "Reel to Real: Using Videos in the Participatory Classroom" (Maria E. Gonzalez); "Skits, Videos, and Conflicts" (Kathy Brucker); "Hopes, Dreams, and Memories: Making Meaning through Poetry and Stories" (Lee Hewitt); and "Using Evaluation Tools as Codes" (Kathy Brucker).
