Jaymee Martin: Language Teachers Change the World
February 7, 2011
At the end of the fall 2010 semester, language teaching students in Peter Shaw's Principles and Practices of Language Teaching course gathered to share their group projects at a Trade Fair. Each project contained tasks and lesson designs based on a "macrostrategy" from the book Beyond Methods: Macrostrategies for Language Teaching by B. Kumaravadivelu (2003), who they affectionately nicknamed "Kumar."
The students entered the Kumar Trade Fair thinking it was an ordinary end -of-semester function. They left realizing that it was just the beginning of something much bigger.
