LANGUAGE & DIVERSITY IN K-12 EDUCATION
The Language & Diversity in K-12 Education Initiative is an Interdisciplinary (Linguistics, Education, Speech and Hearing Science, Spanish) graduate student effort to bring theories about language into the K-12 classroom to address issues of discrimination, inequality and identity.
We are making select Power Points publicly available here in the hopes that they will be useful for educators and for others who research language and are interested in making their own connections between their research and community. Please feel free to distribute these materials as widely as you choose. If you would like additional materials, please contact me by email.
