I read Grant’s post and find I disagree with him on a number of points. My question is: how do we handle diversity of perspectives and opinions on how to teach students a foreign language? This discussion came up some time ago when several persons kept tugging on list members to come around to their point of view. Do we need to engage every time we disagree with someone? Will people assume we agree if we don’t register disagreement? How far can we disagree and still see ourselves as colleagues?
