The Adult ESL Experience: Facilitating Perspective Transformation in the Classroom
Perspective transformation offers a framework from which to examine the adult ESL learning experience. This framework highlights a process of critical reflection and self-examination that leads to personal development and change. Research among 208 adult learners enrolled in ESL programs was conducted to examine the educational contributors to and nature of perspective transformation experiences. Through this research, a model is demonstrated that may be used by classroom teachers to engage in action research to assess and improve their practice. Implications for teacher education and faculty development, classroom practice, and support are also discussed.
