Hi Everyone,

I am an ESOL/English teacher in Christchurch on study leave for the year. I am doing a masters action research project to design a professional development programme to explore culturally responsive teaching strategies and resources for teachers to help their Pasifika English language learners develop and express critical thinking skills. I have a few ideas already but would like some 'teacher voice' around the need for this type of PD and what format would be most useful for teachers. I have included a link to a Google Form that will take about 2 minutes to complete. It would be really helpful if you could take the time to complete and submit it for me.

Cheers, Lauren

    Hi Lauren,

         What a great topic. Have you thought about posting to the ESOL Online listserve and to the Secondary Literacy Online listserve? I'm sure you would get a great response. I can put the link in my weekly update if you would like.

    Kind regards
