Celebrating the Blessedness of Linguistic Diversity in the Classroom
What can teachers do to celebrate linguistic diversity and make emergent bilingual students feel welcome and appreciated in the classroom? My research in ESL/bilingual education revolves around creating translanguaging spaces and multilingual learning environments for celebrating the beauty of unity amid diversity in the K-12 education setting. During the presentation, I will highlight how Christian educators can address the needs of emergent bilingual students by moving away from monoglossic language ideologies toward heteroglossic language ideologies and suggest how to enact this vision in the classroom.
This lecture is part of the Continuum Scholars Faculty Development Program: an inter-divisional cohort of pre-tenure faculty members who met last summer to discuss theological perspectives on the vocation of scholarship, the current state of theological reflection and engagement in their research fields and disciplines, and the ecumenical continuum of theological perspectives through which our colleagues both at Hope College and within higher education approach their own scholarship. Our goal through this program and these lectures is to build a community committed to an ongoing conversation about faith, vocation, and scholarship. We hope that you will be part of it.
Spring 2023 Continuum Scholars lectures:
