The Language Series
Wilkomen! Benvenuti! Bienvenidos! Ni hau! Welcome!
The 2020 Language Series, “Anti-Racist Language Teaching,” was held on October 24 as a virtual space for educators to share their design of learning experiences for language-minoritized children and nurture our understandings of curriculum and pedagogy that validate the language practices of all children.
The event featured keynote speaker Dr. Nelson Flores, Associate Professor of Educational Linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education, followed by five rounds of workshops with content in Early Childhood, Childhood/Elementary, Middle Grades/Secondary, Teacher Education, and Family and Community Partnerships.
Teachers, parents, and leaders will expand their repertoire of effective and developmentally appropriate language learning skills at the day-long conference. You will choose breakout sessions for hands-on learning opportunities and discuss topics relevant to progressive language learning. Led by experts in the field, you’ll explore teaching tools such as music, movement, and drama and learn how they will excite your students as they develop their ability to learn English or another language.
As a participant, you will:
- Learn to create transformative moments of language growth in the classroom
- Re-energize your practice with developmentally appropriate tools and techniques
- Choose from interactive, hands-on sessions that match your personal interests
- Meet and network with peers and explore an exchange of progressive ideas together
