World Journal of Education

August 27th, 2011 · 2 Comments

I just added this new journal to my page of journals and article collections. Though not focused exclusively on English language teaching, The World Journal of Education featured several articles on ESL/EFL and sociolinguistics in their first issue, including this one by Carlous Muluh Nkwetisama looking at the perception of English teachers in Cameroon towards […]

Green Theory and Praxis: The Journal of Ecopedagogy

June 21st, 2011 · No Comments

In case you can’t tell, I’ve been on a bit of an academic article kick recently. I just found a new journal: Green Theory and Praxis: The Journal of Ecopedagogy. There isn’t an ESL / EFL focus, but a lot of what they discuss fits well within content-based instruction or critical pedagogy. Their archive is […]

The journal is aimed at middle and senior high school English teachers, but a lot of the ideas and activities are totally relevant to ESL or EFL contexts. Several of the articles discuss […]

Journals and Professional Organizations

June 17th, 2011 · No Comments

I just went through the journals and professional organizations pages to update them and fix all the broken links. I found some great stuff while poking around in there. For one thing, JALT’s GISIG has huge portion of their newsletter archives up on their website. I also added a link to the collection of ESL […]

Spiritual Dimension of Sustainable Development

February 18th, 2008 · No Comments

The latest issue of the Solidarity, Sustainability, and Non-Violence newsletter is out, and it addresses the Spiritual Dimension of Sustainable Development. This is a point of view that does not often come up in my classes, and might strike a chord with some students. I particularly liked the article Spirituality of Spiritual Development. It opens […]

Greening an Intensive English Programme

January 27th, 2008 · No Comments

An article I co-wrote was recently published in IATEFL’s GISIG newsletter. I’m not entirely sure how one gets a copy of the newsletter (joining the email list might be a good place to start) but here is the article. The article details the project we undertook to make an intensive English program more environmentally responsible. […]

Global Issues, Everyday Actions

December 8th, 2007 · No Comments

Several months ago I wrote a paper explaining my individual activism project for JALT’s Global Issues in Language Education newsletter. Since the newsletter is mailed to my parents house, I never actually knew if it had been published. Turns out it has!

Here it is as a .doc file, and I’ve posted it below if you’d prefer to read it in your browser. And here’s the bibliographic info:

Royal, D. (2007). Global Issues, Everyday Actions. Global Issues in Language Education, 65, 15-17.

ESL World News Report / ESL Chatterbox #3

October 11th, 2007 · No Comments

Larry Ferlazzo posted today about ESL World News Report, a free site offering an “unbiased and objective” 4-page electronic newspaper every Monday of the school year. The paper attempts to help keep adult ESL students informed about important global events, and prepare them for responsible citizenship. I haven’t looked at it in much detail yet, […]

More ESL / EFL Journals

September 19th, 2007 · No Comments

I recently came across the online journal section of Larry Ferlazzo’s website. He has links to several online ESL journals that I didn’t have on my journal page. When I have time to look at them, I’ll add them to my list of journals, and give each a brief review. Here they are in the […]
