IBL in ESL class
This project examines teaching English as a second language (ESL) abroad with inquiry-based learning (IBL) concepts. Last year, I was a full-time student and I had a chance to experience IBL myself. IBL helps students develop a growth mindset, which means students believe that their talent and intelligence can be developed and their failures are opportunities to enhance learning. The question of why students achieve better results when they study the English language abroad than at home (in the Middle East) is addressed through a current literature review. One solution to ESL schools in the Middle East will be in this project, which is a handbook for ESL educators. The handbook guides ESL educators through three sample lesson plans to teach communication, thinking, and personal and social skills.
