The Pedagogies and Perceptions of English Language Teachers in China

The overall objective of my research project is to examine the pedagogies and perceptions of English language teachers in China with the intent of comparing and contrasting them to those of French language teachers in Canada. The summarized objectives are (1) to develop a clear understanding of teaching strategies used by English language teachers in China, (2) to gain insight into the teaching resources used by English language teachers in China, and (3) to analyze how teacher-student interaction facilitates the usage of the English language in English language classrooms in China. The conclusions drawn from this project will be used to contribute to the overall goal of the SSHRC Partnership Grant Project of developing a better understanding of the similarities and differences between Canadian and Chinese education.
