Expanding and localizing efforts to prioritize critical language awareness
Zoom Webinar. You will receive the link in your confirmation email.
This webinar addresses the need to expand localized efforts to integrate critical language awareness (CLA) as a main objective and outcome in language programs and language teacher education in the U.S.
Panelists first deconstruct what CLA means in relation to learning and teaching a U.S. minority language, with a focus on Spanish as a second/heritage/world language.
Then, we consider opportunities and challenges in integrating CLA within our own local contexts and imagine collective paths forward in developing critically aware language users and educators on a broader scale.
The session is open to AAAL members and non-members alike and significant time will be allotted for discussion. A recording will be available for registered participants who are unable to attend.
