Research Request: EL Teachers' Confidence

My name is Michael Karas and I am a PhD student at Western University. Under the supervision of Dr. Farahnaz Faez, I am investigating English language teachers’ confidence in their abilities to complete various English teaching tasks (i.e. self-efficacy). We are still looking for participants and would like to invite you to participate in our study and complete an online survey. The survey portion of the study is completely anonymous and takes approximately 20 - 30 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey, you can also volunteer to be interviewed over Skype, but this is completely optional. If you are currently teaching English, or are enrolled in a teacher education program, we would love to hear from you. Please access the survey using this link:

Sincerely,

Ongoing

TESOL Press has a call for abstracts for the following books from the Putting Research into Practice Series:

Putting Research into Practice: Middle School Abstracts due: Rolling deadline Volume Editors: Holly Hansen-Thomas (hhansenthomas@twu.edu) and Kristen Lindahl (kristen.lindahl@utsa.edu)

Putting Research into Practice: High School Abstracts due: Rolling deadline Volume Editors: Holly Hansen-Thomas (hhansenthomas@twu.edu) and Mary Amanda Stewart (mstewart7@twu.edu)

Putting Research into Practice: English as a Foreign Language Abstracts due: Rolling deadline Volume Editor: Lucilla Lopriore (lucilla.lopriore@uniroma3.it)

Scope and Purpose The main goal of the series is to create new spaces for practitioner knowledge and engagement with TESOL research. As a professional community, we are interested in highlighting how TESOL practitioners direct their own professional learning through reading, questioning, interpreting and adapting research findings to and in their own contexts. The result will be a very accessible and rich collection that adds to the overall knowledge base while also validating the critical role teachers play in TESOL’s overall mission to improve learning and teaching. The series will recast the great amount of TESOL material in TESOL Journal, TESOL Quarterly, Essential Teacher and other TESOL Press publications such as the English Language Teaching in Context series.

There will be four books in the series overall, and each book will have a similar format. The books will be approximately 150-180 pages and will include 10-12 chapters dedicated to the content areas of mathematics, science, social studies, and English language arts, in Elementary, Middle School, and High School levels. There will also be a volume devoted to English as a Foreign Language, and it will be divided into three parts, primary, secondary, and higher education. Each volume will be foregrounded with an introductory chapter and will close with a concluding chapter. The series will be published in print, but lesson plans and other supplementary materials will be available for download on a website dedicated to the series.

Audience This series of books will be read by a wide range of participants in the TESOL community, including ESL/EFL teachers, content area teachers, program administrators, etc. Additionally, they could be used as course readings for teacher education programs and professional development of teachers of ELLs.

Contributors Experienced, novice, and nonnative English speaking teachers, administrators, researchers, and other educational professionals are encouraged to contribute to this series. The chapters will speak to the various educational profiles of students in diverse regions.

Abstract Submission • Abstracts of 400-500 words (excluding references) must be submitted via email to the volume editor(s) • The abstract must include the complete citation of the original TESOL publication that inspired the lesson, an overview of the chapter, the targeted concept or research finding to be illustrated, and a brief description of the lesson and its the context

  • 2-4 page synopsis of the original research article/chapter, including the original citation.
  • 1-2 page rationale for choosing the research and creating a lesson based on the research.

New Journal: Journal of Language and Discrimination (JLD)

The new Journal of Language and Discrimination will be launched in 2017 with Equinox.

Discrimination is an important research topic in a large number of diverse but related fields, including linguistics, law, anthropology, sociology and psychology. This complex, multidisciplinary research topic often has a strong focus and concern with language. The new Journal of Language and Discrimination aims to bring together a multidisciplinary synergy of approaches on discrimination as a complex linguistic and non-linguistic phenomenon. In bringing together different research strands that focus on discrimination, the journal hopes to serve as a catalyst for innovation and play a pivotal role in establishing interdisciplinary language and discrimination research worldwide.

The editors of JLAD invite papers that reflect the diversity of possible approaches in relation to language and discrimination. The aim is to include work with a wide array of approaches that reflect the diversity and recent developments of research on language and discrimination.

Topics may include but are not limited to:

  • Reflections on the research that has been done on discrimination in your field, and the direction in which research could or should develop
  • Discussions on broadening the field versus constraining academic subject areas
  • Consideration of definitions of discrimination, and the benefits and disadvantages of using this term for our research
  • Theoretical and methodological considerations in interdisciplinary research
  • Case studies from different fields that relate to language and discrimination
  • Qualitative analyses on language and discrimination

Editors:

Editor Sara Mills, Sheffield Hallam University (s.l.millsshu.ac.uk)

Editor Isabelle van der Bom, Sheffield Hallam University (i.v.bomshu.ac.uk)

Editor Laura Paterson, Lancaster University (l.patersonlancaster.ac.uk)
