Teaching English for and with Communities
Salas, Spencer; Safaradan, Majid; de le Torre Ugarte, Ana Maria
English Teaching Forum, v46 n3 p30-34 2008
This article is a reflection of English teaching in Chiclayo, Peru, at a not-for-profit cultural center. It starts with a brief explanation of the authors' desire to help transform the community through English teaching. The article then explains the concept of civic education and offers a three-tiered approach that has been designed to help the community: Chiclayo reads, summer institute for k-12 English teachers, and the advanced curriculum. The implementation and results of the projects are discussed.
