Bringing ESL Students out of Their Shells: Enhancing Participation through Online Discussion
Campbell, Nittaya
Business Communication Quarterly, v70 n1 p37-43 2007
The majority of international students at the author's university are ESL students, mainly from East Asia and Southeast Asia. Although student diversity makes for a more exciting and interesting classroom, teaching a culturally mixed class is not without its challenges, one of which is that ESL students tend not to participate in class discussion. This article describes how instructors can use online discussion to integrate these students and enhance their participation.
