Many Voices: A Journal of New Settlers and Multicultural Education Issues, n1-5 Nov 1991-May 1993
This document consists of the first five issues (19 months) of a new journal providing an ongoing forum for the celebration of cultural diversity and an examination of the issues of concern to learners and teachers in multicultural schools and in classes for new migrants at the adult level. Objectives of the journal are: (1) to provide information and research relating to the teaching of English to speakers of other languages, to community language and bilingual teaching, and to first language maintenance; (2) to discuss cross-cultural issues in education; (3) to act as a forum for the exchange of practical ideas and experiences for teachers of English as a Second Language (ESL) and community language teaching; and (4) to provide a change for minority ethnic community members to express their views on issues of education and schooling. Among the many topics discussed in Numbers 1-5 are: current issues in language learning and teaching, curriculum for ESL learners, peer tutoring bilingual children in a cooperative learning classroom, women's role in promoting bilingualism, and refugee students with no previous schooling.
