Critical Language Pedagogy: Reimagining Dialects, Identity and Power in Urban Education

Facilitated by Dr. Amanda J. Godley, this Lunch & Learn talk will describe how Critical Language Pedagogy redefines language and literacy education and how 300 teachers from across the U.S. learned to enact it.

Critical Language Pedagogy is an approach to teaching about language that acknowledges power, privilege, identity and racism in how we use and talk about language and dialects.

A limited quantity of Dr. Godley's book, Critical Language Pedagogy: Interrogating Language, Dialects, and Power in Teacher Education will be available for registrants.

Light refreshments will be available at 11:45 a.m.

Thursday, December 6 at 12:00 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.

CUE Commons, 4303, Wesley Posvar Hall
