Join us on Facebook: A Pedagogy of Care and New Chances Maria Lisak Join us on Facebook: How do we show a caring learning environment that never gives up on the learner? This dialogue is a chance to talk with other educators concerned about making safe spaces within the competitive English gatekeeping system. Welcome Join us on Facebook: In my classes there are several wounded souls. Wounded not just by English but other systemic forces too Promote healing to get back in the fray I want to empower my learners I want them to feel safe & confident to express & develop their identity I hope that they tap into their lives to problem solve I teach public administration & social welfare. But really I teach an ESP course in PA&SW But really, really I teach soft skills for successful living, working and studying . Rationale Join us on Facebook: Unpacking My Pedagogy Theories, Methods, and practices, oh my! Join us on Facebook: Critical Theory critiquing and changing society as a whole Social Justice Pedagogy to analyze social life through a lens of diversity to prepare students to be transformative democratic agents Also, a dose of Adult Education Theory (Andragogy) Learners are experienced already, autonomous, collaborative; our studies are relevant and practical to their future jobs Theory Join us on Facebook: C ulturally Responsive Teaching/Pedagogy exploring one's own culture, learning about other cultures, and learning about students' cultures. English for Specific Purposes Public administration (project managers) Social welfare (social workers) Participatory P ractices in Constructivism Co-construction of rules, work and grades Collaborative decision making Negotiation to modify teacher’s rules, work & assessment But I can also find: Join us on Facebook: Shut up Class-keeping & Instructions at start of class During class: clarify, confirm, encourage End of class: feedback & reminders Outside of class contact Flip class Homework – making time Class time - present or perform in class F2F & online - evaluate , assess & assist Method Join us on Facebook: e licit what learners already know document it multimodally q uestion, critique, analyze, understand together teach to the errors r eflect, especially by connecting to the ‘real world’ risk taking > applying new learns to real life My Practices Join us on Facebook: Korean language Smart devices Naver Dictionary Google Translate App Peers Teacher Classroom Tools Join us on Facebook: Opportunities for silence counter-storytelling multimodal learning all fit into a practice of inclusion and care. Activities to Foster & Heal Join us on Facebook: Inclusive silence is a way to welcome quiet time as honored and ‘listened to.” Music , movement (mime), and silence in response to videos, art objects, and realia , are curative and restorative modalities, giving learners space to pull things apart without falling apart. What do you do with silence in your class? Silence Join us on Facebook: Counter-storytelling, an example of social justice pedagogy, is a means of exposing and critiquing dialogues that often go unchallenged. Book covers from pictures Who’s voice is missing? Valuation: Help/hurt litmus testing Do you give ill-structured problems  that have unclear goals and incomplete information? Ill-structured problems are great chances to elicit counter-stories. Counter-storytelling Join us on Facebook: Meaning making practices Unleveled class English, Korean, pictures, videos, movement, music, other languages When there is a wider range of modality to express meaning, there is more meaning making activity to engage in. How can you error correct multimodally ? How can you show care multimodally ? What texts do you find create a healing atmosphere in your class? How can multimodal expressions foster confidence and risk taking? Multimodality Join us on Facebook: Silence, counter- storying and multimodal artifacts are types of advocacy which encourage learner transformation and celebrate their own performative learning . A care-based pedagogy allows learners to enter and exit learning experiences as whole beings while reflexively negotiating that learning experience together. Every class is a new chance to risk and grow together. Learning (and unlearning) is tough. Don’t give up!
