ESL instructors sometimes avoid difficult topics like race, civil rights, or immigration in the beginning ESL classroom out of concern that the language of those topics might be too “advanced.” However, our students engage with such difficult topics on a daily basis, so early exposure to, and practice with, that language may benefit them. The presenters will share approaches to discussing complicated issues in beginning ESL classrooms with examples from their classrooms.
