TEAL News is available 3 times a year through the BC TEAL website. The purpose of the Newsletter is to share information, research, cultural issues, announcements and updates relevant to teachers of English as an additional language.
The theme for this issue is “From Theory to Reality”. No matter where we are in our career, we often feel uncertainty about our ability to apply what we have learned to a real setting. In “Snippets from Abroad”, an instructor talks about facing this problem in a classroom in China. In “Reflections”, two different instructors share their thoughts about this process. As well, sometimes to grow as professionals we need a helping hand. BC TEAL offers this hand through its many awards. In this issue we have a number of reports from winners of the different BC TEAL awards. Read their reports to find out what a ‘haptician’ is, what it is like to study abroad, what was learned from the Dallas TESOL convention, what is involved in teaching about HIV/Aids in Africa and how to teach about pain.
