Presentation for the Reform Symposium, 2013
In today's society, talking about and dealing with traditionally ostracized, marginalized minority groups in the classroom have gradually become part of forums, some class materials, websites, and research. A good example is the Disabled Access Friendly website or the conference ‘Breaking the ice: addressing LGBT issues in the ESOL classroom’. In this talk, I will focus on my experience with students with disabilities outside the language classroom as part of a university support group. I will talk about why and how this group support was created and reflect about our responsibility as educators to promote social improvement, and not only to contribute to the formation of global citizens.
