Unpacking future language teachers’ sense of communities from a knowledges otherwise perspective: decolonizing research on language teacher education in Colombia
The purpose of this research project is to describe how primary English learners construct the concept of gender and analyze if this construction has an effect on their learning of the foreign language English. In order to achieve these objectives I will make some video recordings of classroom interactions, I will conduct some interviews and I will also collect some drawings about children’s representations of gender. By carrying out this project I hope to contribute to a better understanding of the role that gender plays in the learning of the foreign language learning. I also hope that this understanding derives in transformative actions to avoid discrimination and promote inclusion, respect and tolerance among the members of school communities.
