PRESENTATION

Using EFL activities to promote acceptance and inclusion

Multi-culture is a reality of today’s global society. However, most students in Thailand are not aware of such diversity. To instill the values of acceptance and inclusion, I included in my English class a small-scale project on a variety of topics ranging from racial and gender discrimination to stereotypes and prejudices. The students were asked to explore online media platforms, such as YouTube and Facebook, analyze the self-selected contents, have extensive discussions and give feedback to one another. To check the students’ attitudes towards the values discussed, a 50-word reflection writing was given at the end of the class. This presentation will highlight the roles of English Language teaching in the cultivation of values for acceptance and inclusion.
