Critical consciousness and critical language teaching
|Title:||Critical consciousness and critical language teaching|
|Advisor:||Brown, James D.|
|Abstract:||What is a language teacher’s job? Is our job to provide instruction using mainstream SLA methods proclaimed to best promote language acquisition? Is our job to provide what students expect in a language classroom in order for instructors to claim that her or his teaching is humanistic and student-centered? Is our job to empower students so that they feel encouraged to achieve their goals in and outside the classroom? Is our job to offer content-based language instruction that helps students pay attention to social issues and social inequalities? How should a teacher perceive language teaching? Although I consider it extremely important to promote effective language teaching to improve students’ language proficiency, in this paper, I will focus on the educational, ethical, and sociopolitical roles of a language teacher.|
