Recognizing and promoting language diversity in our classrooms is critical to creating a positive and socially just learning environment. Language bias complicates these efforts. In this learning community, participants will learn about the concepts of linguistic diversity and language bias. We will consider how language diversity affects our interactions with and assessment of students. Participants will learn and develop socially just, inclusive teaching practices that will promote linguistic diversity in the classroom.
