Abstract

Kim, Nahee. 2019. Action research on a global corporation’s English storytelling programme in a context of high stakes language test preparation: From narrative identity. Korean Journal of English Language and Linguistics 19-1, 165-193. This action research aims to implement a global corporation’s storytelling-based curriculum, focusing on perspectives of narrative identity. In order to do that, Shin et al.’s (2018a) curriculum and Shin et al.’s (2018b) text book of storytelling were applied to the global corporation’s English language programme. Seven participants employed at the global corporation were joined in the research and taught by the researcher during the first semester of 2018 language programme. The curriculum consisted of two modules: action based and structure based. It was found that learners’ narrative identity were negatively constructed in a context of high stakes language test preparation, experiencing test preparation impact on their identity. However, as storytelling-based learning continued, learner’s narrative identity including narrative level and reflective response was positively developed. It is suggested that there is a need for implementing narrative identity based storytelling programme in a global corporation’s language education by listening to learners’ voices.


Keywords: high stakes language test preparation, English storytelling, narrative, action research, narrative identity, global corporation
