Multicultural Awareness through English: A Potential Contribution of TESOL in Greek Schools
Fay, Richard; Lytra, Vally; Ntavaliagkou, Maria
Intercultural Education, v21 n6 p581-595 Dec 2010
The cultural diversity now evident in Greek society creates educational challenges and opportunities. Space to address these is provided by the multicultural awareness aspects of the discourse of the Cross-Thematic Curriculum Framework (CTCF). For English language classes, multicultural direction is provided through the disciplinary discussion of new teaching paradigm possibilities. In particular, these discussions encourage us to explore the repositioning of English teaching in Greek state schooling from a foreign language orientation towards a multicultural one. In this article, having set the context, we present the Multicultural Awareness Through English (MATE) paradigm. We conclude by illustrating the MATE paradigm in action. (Contains 3 tables and 5 notes.)
