Letter Writing in the Intercultural Classroom: The Case of Retraining Courses for Immigrant English Teachers in Israel
Gordon Ginzburg, Etti
Intercultural Education, v30 n2 p180-195 2019
Training of immigrant teachers offers ample opportunities for intercultural interactions, yet it also requires unique sensitivities. On the one hand, immigrant teachers are often qualified and experienced. At the same time, immigration forces them out of their comfort zone, entailing some loss of professional status and self-esteem. The essay suggests letter writing as a method that aims to address these often-neglected aspects in the training of immigrant teachers and is based on a course given to new immigrant English teachers in Israel.
