The ESL Teacher as Moral Agent.
Johnston, Bill; Juhasz, Andrea; Marken, James; Ruiz, Beverly Rolfs
Research in the Teaching of English, v32 n2 p161-81 May 1998
Studies the moral dimension of English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) teaching to adults. Analyzes examples of classroom interaction to reveal the moral substrate of the teacher's words and actions. Finds that various features of classroom routines and impromptu exchanges have profound moral significance. Suggests that the moral meanings present in classroom discourse cannot be reduced to simple judgments of right versus wrong. (RS)
