Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What Do International Students Think and Feel? seeks to illuminate the lives of international students at colleges and universities in the United States. The book is designed to increase awareness about the process of adjusting to another culture, particularly in a short period of time.

 

Based on more than two decades of research into this process by international students in U.S. university language institutes and undergraduate and graduate programs, this book features a rich and diverse assortment of personal narratives by students representing countries all over the world. The research also revealed the strategies that students report they have used to navigate within a new culture; international students share their successes and their failures in this regard. In addition, they also share their experiences once they return to their homeland and re-adjust to life there, including what they have learned about themselves and their own values that relate to culture.

 

What Do International Students Think and Feel? will make an excellent supplement to several courses with an M.A. TESOL program—methods, introduction to culture/intercultural communication, or the practicum.  

Synopsis:

The ESOL classroom presents challenges that go beyond technology, linguistic knowledge, or what is covered in teacher education programs: there are issues that reach far past the curriculum.and#160;

and#160;

What should a teacher do when presented with a gift from a student? What about being asked to submit a late paper? These are the types of situations that are frequently overlooked in post-secondary and adult ESOL classrooms and the types of emotional, intellectual, and ethical dilemmas that are looked at on a case-by-case basis in Dilemmas in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.

and#160;The 40 cases in this book will stimulate analysis, encourage reflection, and spark discussion for teachers as well as other members of the educational community by offering both suggestions for fostering discussion andand#160;insightful tips for handling dilemmas with professionalism, thought, and social responsibility.
