Frameworks for Investing Indonesian EFL Listening Materials with Character Education
MetadataShow full item record
This paper offers a solution to Indonesia’s mission of investing EFL listening materials with character education in higher institutions. The character is seen as a dimension of content competence, namely attitude. Developed by using Content-Based Instruction approach, the alternative view is reflected through listening materials design to target strengthening moral values, principles, and attitudes. The framework argues that listening materials should accommodate the need to tailor materials for teaching, rather, than for assessment. It also responds to the ubiquity of English as a Lingua Franca. It argues that the investment of character education leads to learning targets that allow students to become concerned, informed, and involved in developing themselves as citizens, and to respond to 21st-century language competences, especially in the ability to embrace cross-cultural understanding and in the use of digital technology in classroom language learning. The proposed framework is offered as decisions made on the materials’ resources, method of development, activities, and assessment.
