A Social Justice Approach to (Heritage) Language Teaching


30th November 2021, 8 pm
In this webinar Inma Gómez Soler will walk us through what it means to teach (heritage) languages through a social justice approach. We will focus our discussion on four specific issues: (1) the deconstruction of the traditional language curriculum, (2) pedagogical approaches that support social justice goals, (3) providing a quality education for all students, and (4) supporting all language teachers with appropriate professional development. Participants will leave this webinar with specific examples of activities to implement social justice language teaching.
