Workshop led by Dr. Uju Anya

Tuesday, May 2nd, 9:00am-12:00pm (zoom)

Thursday, May 11, 12:30-1:20pm (Cobb)

Workshop participants are encouraged to bring a sample from textbooks, syllabi, lesson plans, online lab content, websites, and other instructional materials for a closer look during this program. They will discuss racism and inequity in the experiences of Black and other minoritized students in world language programs and learn how the theoretical framework of critical race theory (CRT) facilitates a clearer understanding of these problems. They will then be introduced to a critical race pedagogy for world language teaching (CRPWLT) to examine artifacts and instructional materials from their language programs and gain strategies to implement antiracist, equity-minded, and inclusive practices that help minoritized students succeed in world language studies.
