For those of you going to TESOL 2013 next week, I’ll be giving two presentations.
1:00-1:45 in D163
Feeding International Students With the Language They Need
Students come to IEPs with religious, environmental, and ethical values that inform their diet. Lessons about food should therefore give students the language they need to control and explain their food choices. In this session, we look critically at food-themed materials from several textbooks and discuss supplementary activities.
Socially Responsible Leadership
In this panel session, I’ll be speaking for 20-30 minutes, sharing ideas for bringing environmental responsibility into English language program administration. Emphasis will be placed on policies and practices that empower students to make environmentally responsible choices. For example, I will share my experience in creating and implementing a green student orientation aimed at familiarizing students with environmental resources both at the school and in the local area. This orientation raised student awareness of sustainable choices in terms of shopping, transportation, food and waste disposal. In addition, I will look at several ways to improve program resource use, including food service and paper consumption.
There are a bunch of other sessions that I’m looking forward to attending. I can already see I have some tough decisions to make!
