Teacher Self-Efficacy Survey

Michael Karas, a PhD student at  Western University, is investigating English language teachers’ confidence in their abilities to complete various English teaching tasks (self-efficacy) and invites you to complete an anonymous 20-30 minute online survey.  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 and wish to participate, please access the survey using this link:

Teaching ESOL Students About Their Rights

The Boston College Center for Human Rights and International Justice has compiled a free set of teaching materials called the ESOL Know Your Rights Tool Kit. The resource is composed of four units: Basic Human Rights; Knowing Your Rights in a Car Stop; Protecting Families in Case of Separation; and Understanding the U.S. School System. Each unit is appropriate for intermediate-level classes; the first two units also include versions for beginners. Units feature multiple, independent lessons with corresponding teacher’s guides, student handouts, and frequently-asked legal questions (FAQ) sheets.
