The Making of a Multicultural English Teacher
Widiyanto, Yohanes Nugroho
English Teaching: Practice and Critique, v4 n1 p106-117 May 2005
This teacher narrative tells the story of the making of a multicultural English teacher, beginning with the author's roots in a remote village in central Java and tracing his journey through a range of educational institutions. In a series of critical reflections, the author discusses a range of social and cultural influences as these impacts on his emerging identity as both English teacher and speaker of a range of languages. These critical reflections constitute a kind of self-study, where the author discusses in a self-reflexive way the sorts of discourses at work that work to construct his identity in a range of different settings. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
