Cross-Cultural Interpretations of Curricular Contextual Crossings
Schlein, Candace; Garii, Barbara
Issues in Teacher Education, v20 n2 p81-94 Fall 2011
Teachers--who are generally representatives of the cultural mainstream--are expected to use global experiences to become culturally enhanced and to bring these enhancements back to their classrooms. In this article, the authors discuss a cross-cultural exploration of investigations into the experiences of Canadian and U.S. educators with professional induction in foreign countries. As such, they display the impact of cross-cultural teaching practice for work with diverse learners. Moreover, they present their inquiries through the lens of cross-cultural dialogue in order to bring to light experiential facets and effects of teaching abroad that interweave global and national curriculum boundaries. Making use of each other's field texts and inquiry puzzles, the authors highlight contextualized interpretations of the experiences and possible relevance of cross-cultural teacher education, induction, and development.
