Meeting the Needs of Chinese English Language Learners at Writing Centers in America: A Proposed Culturally Responsive Model
Wang, Peizhen; Machado, Crystal
Journal of International Students, v5 n2 p143-160 Sum 2015
This paper describes the ways in which Writing Centers (WC) currently serve English Language Learners (ELL) at American universities. The authors argue that the pedagogy offered at these centers does not always meet the needs of the Chinese ELLs who make up the largest population of ELLs at American universities. The proposed supplemental model they recommend, which is grounded in Culturally Responsive Pedagogy (CRP), has the potential to better meet the needs of Chinese ELLs. The authors identify obstacles to successful implementation of the proposed model and ways in which these, and gaps in research, can be addressed by directors of Writing Centers.
