Teacher narratives from the Eikaiwa classroom: moving beyond “McEnglish”
edited by Daniel Hooper and Natasha Hashimoto.
PE1130.J3 T43 2020
This book includes 16 chapters written by current and former eikaiwa (English conversation school) teachers to illustrate a complexity within the eikaiwa profession that has been thus far largely ignored.
Through teacher narratives, the authors explore the unique and often problematic world of eikaiwa to present a counter-narrative to what the editors regard as blanket stereotyping of a multifaceted and evolving teaching context.
