Social Justice in the Language Classroom: A New Lens on Learning
Presented by Pamela M. Wesely (University of Iowa)
November 4, 2017
University of Arizona

Workshop description: In this workshop, the participants will start by examining the principles of social justice education, looking specifically at how those principles connect with the guidelines and standards in language teaching. The participants will also reflect on and discuss their own interests and strengths in becoming language educators for social justice as we review those concepts. We will proceed through activities and discussions designed to help the participants to plan and adapt curriculum, classroom activities, and assessments that help students to understand and enact principles of social justice while still developing their language proficiency. We will also address how teachers can address unplanned and challenging moments that arise in the classroom in a way that respects students and encourages critical thinking.
