Welcome to BC TEAL. We hope this website provides a central meeting place and on-line community for EAL professionals throughout BC. Our goal is to advance the profession of teaching English as an additional language by facilitating professional development for all of our members.
The BC TEAL Journal is a peer-reviewed open access publication of the Association of BC Teachers of English as an Additional Language (BC TEAL). The journal exists to promote scholarship related to the teaching and learning of English as an Additional Language (EAL) in British Columbia, with articles explicitly reflecting the varying contexts and settings of the BC TEAL membership. The publication is available freely online at: http://ejournals.ok.ubc.ca/index.php/BCTJ
The BC TEAL Journal invites your submissions.
The first issue will be published in the late Fall 2015.
The fall issue of the BC TEAL Newsletter has just been published, with the theme of “Professional Development.”
A huge thank you goes out to all of the authors and contributors to this issue. Special thanks in particular are sent to Vania Ganacheva-Kasui and Alison Truelove for their efforts in getting this issue out before the Tri-TESOL conference. Please enjoy this latest offering from BC TEAL.
