TESOL Journal Seeks Submissions for a Special Issue
Engaged Teaching and Learning: Service-Learning, Civic Literacy, and TESOL
Deadline for Proposals 1 July 2012
Send abstracts to Guest Editor Adrian Wurr (firstname.lastname@example.org)
TESOL Journal seeks proposals for a special issue on Engaged Teaching and Learning: Service-Learning, Civic Literacy, and TESOL. Abstracts should be no more than 600 words and should describe previously unpublished work with implications for a variety of TESOL professionals. Possible topics may include, but are not limited to
- What best practices exist for service-learning in TESOL? What evidence supports the use of these practices?
- Do English language learners evince any significant changes in idenitity or agency as they shift served vs. server roles in society? What impacts, if any, do these shifts have on others?
- What can we learn from the impact of international service-learning (ISL) on students' personal and professional development? Given the intensity of some ISL experiences, what challenges do returning students face in reentry adjustment, reverse culture shock, and career choices?
- What course and program models exist that promote understandings of diversity by, for example, exploring cultural contact zones and concepts of the "other," challenging common cultural stereotypes of linguistic and cultural minorities, and/or encouraging critical reflection on ethnolinguistic and/or political identities?
Proposals should be sent to Adrian Wurr at email@example.com with the subject line "TESOL Journal STI Proposal" and are due by 1 July 2012. Authors whose proposals are selected by the guest editor will be asked to send complete manuscripts by 15 October 2012. Selected abstracts are not a guarantee of publication in the special issue.
