'I want to make the invisible visible': teacher motivation in Argentinian prison education

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Prison education seems underrepresented in education, learning, and teaching journals and edited collections. As a teacher of English as a foreign language in Argentina, I decided to explore English language teaching (ELT) through a focus on teacher motivation in prisons.

Based on the two experiences reported in this chapter, social motivation and collaborative actions may help teachers involved in prison education and other less favoured settings perceive themselves as active contributors to the dynamics of social participation. Teachers may feel motivated to work under difficult circumstances when their drive to work for the common good, sense of citizenship, collaboration, and social responsibility are so high that challenges are perceived as new opportunities for professional but, above all, personal development.
