on Mixed-Level Community College
Sarkissian and Greg Conner, teachers at
in Costa Mesa, California, asked their ESL
students to take part in an online writing project.
They asked them to write their reactions (positive
and negative) to working in class with people whose
English backgrounds are very different.
certainly an issue many students in US schools have
to cope with: the disappointment US high school
grads feel at being placed in ESL and the shock
international students feel at having to compete
with more fluent "native" ESL students."

at work on their project.
