OER Hangout: Making your language curriculum more inclusive
Thursday, March 12, 2020 - 15:30 CDT
Online in Zoom
3:30pm CDT (1:30pm PDT / 2:30pm MDT / 4:30pm EDT)
Language students and instructors, and speakers of any given language, come from all different backgrounds and identify with a variety of races, ethnicities, cultures, abilities, genders, sexual orientations, ages, religions, languages, body types, and socio-economic statuses. However, this wide-ranging human experience isn’t always represented in traditional language-learning materials.
In this discussion-based webinar, panelists and participants will share ideas for developing classroom activities that include perspectives from a more diverse group of people, especially from populations not traditionally represented in textbooks.
Kia London and Jenniffer Whyte will share examples of how they have incorporated Afro-Latino culture into their K-12 Spanish classrooms, but we hope instructors of all languages and levels will join for this universally applicable discussion!
There will be 20 minutes of presentation time, and the rest of the hour will be dedicated to your questions and to conversation between participants and panelists.
