Celebrating differences:

Exploration of Equality and Diversity in the ESOL classroom


Laila El-Metoui

 

This seminar will focus on strategies for integrating Equality and Diversity within your English

teaching practice, to foster a positive atmosphere conducive to learning. Language acquisition can be

hindered if learners are not in an environment which is conducive to fostering a welcoming

atmosphere where all feel free to talk about themselves, their identities and personal lives. This is

particularly relevant to LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) ESOL students. However,

ESOL learners can sometimes display strong homophobic views, linked to culture, religion and

personal beliefs.


LGBT lives will be used as an example of integrating E&D. Participants will have the opportunity to

reflect on potential classroom issues and share good practice. It will also explore some of the

challenges surrounding sexual diversity raised by the new legal climate created by the 2010 Equality

Act.

 

 Aims

  • To clarify E&D nine protected characteristics and LGBT discrimination terminology 
  • To enable participants to reflect on their own practice of E&D integration 
  • To explore ways to challenge discrimination and some teaching resources 
  • To identify institutional support needed for successful E&D integration
