International Schools as Gateways to the Intercultural Development of North-American Teachers
Savva, Maria
Journal of Research in International Education, v12 n3 p214-227 Dec 2013
This study uses a chronological lens to examine North-American teacher experiences in international schools abroad. Using semi-structured interviews, teachers compare their experiences in the United States or Canada with their experiences in international schools abroad. Findings suggest that struggles associated with being the "other" in a foreign country often transformed a superficial intercultural awareness into a deeper intercultural understanding among teachers. Despite this broader understanding, not all teachers made explicit connections to their professional practice.
