Returnees' Identity Construction at a BA TESOL Program in Mexico (Construcción de identidad de retornados en un pregrado en enseñanza del inglés para hablantes de otras lenguas en México)
Rivas Rivas, Leonardo
PROFILE: Issues in Teachers' Professional Development, v15 n2 p185-197 Oct 2013
This article has at its core the unraveling of factors that have influenced the identity of those who have been caught in between two worlds (Mexico and The United States) and whom will be called pre- and in-service returnees from now on. A qualitative approach was chosen in order to delve deep into the participants' lived experiences through narrative inquiry which in turn aided in the discovery of the elements that have influenced their identity construction. The data suggest that those same elements have been crucial in the creation of a small culture among the participants at a teacher education program in teaching English to speakers of other languages at a Mexican university.
