The WORD - Hawaii TESOL's Newsletter




Attention Hawaii TESOL Professionals!


Here's a great professional development

         opportunity! Why not contribute a brief

         article to the Hawaii TESOL newsletter!?


There are many possibilities for articles, but here are a few ideas: 

  • recommended internet sites (or a tech type column), 
  • book reviews, 
  • a grad student's perspective, 
  • field trips/learning outside the classroom, 
  • reports from members working overseas, 
  • content-based teaching ideas, 
  • using video and music in the classroom,
  • online teaching, 
  • CALL,
  • a "gripes" column, 
  • DOE news/concerns, 
  • K-12 news, 
  • outer island news, 
  • applying theory into practice, 
  • interview with someone in the field, 
  • etc. 
This list is by no means exhaustive. Please feel free to send us any articles about these topics or others that you consider interesting to ESL educators in Hawaii.


Please submit the articles or any questions via email to Lisa Kawai:  lkawai@hpu.edu
