Global Issues in English Education: Reflections on Approach

By Mark N. Zion

Abstract

publisher藤沢In this article I offer an approach I have developed through presenting contentious issues to students in Japan. For the listening classes in the Academic English Program, where I covered two important events of the American Civil Rights Movement in the autumn semester 2009-10, I will outline my goal for presenting some of the clashing value systems at the root of America’s racial conflict. I discuss the nature of ideologies in particular, of the importance of distancing oneself from them, for bringing perspective and balance to important historical moments. Most importantly, students can learn a great deal about a culture by considering both sides of an ideological clash.

Topics: ideology, segregation, integration, paradigm
