The ESOL classroom presents challenges that go beyond technology, linguistic knowledge, or what is covered in teacher education programs: there are issues that reach far past the curriculum. 

What should a teacher do when presented with a gift from a student? What about being asked to submit a late paper? These are the types of situations that are frequently overlooked in post-secondary and adult ESOL classrooms and the types of emotional, intellectual, and ethical dilemmas that are looked at on a case-by-case basis in Dilemmas in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.

The 40 cases in this book will stimulate analysis, encourage reflection, and spark discussion for teachers as well as other members of the educational community by offering both suggestions for fostering discussion and insightful tips for handling dilemmas with professionalism, thought, and social responsibility.
Reviews about Dilemmas in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages: 40 Cases (Michigan Teacher Training) (2):
Silvermaster
People who teach English to people who speak foreign languages often find that cultural differences between them and their students can result in a variety of ethical and cultural challenges, conflicts and problems unrelated to the mechanics of teaching English. This book encourages its readers to consider and reflect upon a broad variety of such challenges, conflicts and problems through the use of 40 case studies.

The 40 case studies cover a broad range of situations that illustrate and highlight the potential for many different ethical and cultural challenges, conflicts, and problems that could face teachers, their supervisors, or educational administrators. Each case study includes: (1) a statement of the case itself; (2) suggested questions for discussion; (3) a list of additional situations to compare or contrast with the case study; (4) questions for further reflection; (5) brief comments, observations, and questions to encourage deeper analysis of the case study; (6) a list of published and online resources to research additional information; (7) a brief resolution of the case study; and (8) a space for readers to jot down their thoughts about the resolution of the case study.

The book is intended to be a textbook that provokes and facilitates discussions in classrooms and online, with its primary intended audience being individuals in teacher education classes (book at page xxii). Apart from its intended audience, the book could be of interest to anyone involved in teaching English to persons who speak foreign languages, as well as anyone who has more than incidental responsibility for supervising or administering such teachers.

The approach to ethics, professionalism, and social responsibility set forth by the authors in the book's Introduction will be welcome to some readers, but unwelcome to others. Indeed, I found some of the statements and contentions in the Introduction about ethics, professionalism, and social responsibility to be unpersuasive and problematic. However, regardless of a reader's particular beliefs and convictions about ethics, professionalism, and social responsibility, the 40 cases studies themselves are thoughtful, thought-provoking, and sufficient to stimulate worthwhile reflection and discussion. Even readers with different beliefs and convictions about ethics, professionalism, and social responsibility can find this book useful.

Great book of discussions to have in a class for future ESOL teachers.
