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. 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 inDilemmas in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. 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 and insightful tips for handling dilemmas with professionalism, thought, and social responsibility.
