Whose integration? - a student's perspective

Dermot Bryers,  Melanie Cooke and Becky Winstanley from EFA London   investigated how the concept of integration was understood and articulated by ESOL learners in two classes in London.

Final report now available

The classes were taught using participatory, Freire-inspired methods, which allowed for the term to be treated critically and dialogically.  The team aimed to problematise the term "integration" and to contrast its mainstream understanding with how it is interpreted and reiterated in our ESOL classrooms.  Ten hours of class time were recorded and observed on each course, in five two-hour classes.
