Counter-narratives as Resistance: Social Justice in the WL Classroom

Language teachers are in a unique position to have linguistic and cultural diversity as fundamental components of our classes. However, when students come with beliefs that may be grounded in ill-informed and/or oppressive ideologies, how can teachers best navigate the conversation? This webinar will offer examples of how to add a social justice lens to commonly taught units and use counter-narratives to inform students’ perspectives.

This webinar will also kick off an IALLT reading group that will use annotation tools to engage in discussion about an article on the topic of social justice and language teaching and learning.
