Abstract

This chapter reflects on the usefulness of World 101, a multi-module online material by the Council on Foreign Relations, for both teacher training and teaching ESL. The context for the project is a university-level, cross-listed undergraduate and graduate-level online course on methods of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). The analysis of the lessons designed by the in-service and pre-service teachers shows that current, globally oriented modules were preferred: global health and climate change were the most frequently chosen topics. World 101 proved to be a very useful material for ESL lesson design by teachers in training, who utilized many of the varied options and global focus of the material. The chapter illustrates several layers of CALL, beginning with the online nature of the course and continuing with the successful use of publicly available online teaching materials for global learning.
