Program Summary

Helping language teachers to increase their awareness of social justice issues and to incorporate those issues into their content can sometimes be challenging in the teacher education classroom. In this workshop, we will address ways that teaching for social justice has become both a topic and a goal in our work as language teacher educators. We will review common challenges in developing language teachers to work for social justice as well as techniques and ideas for creating teacher education contexts that support the development of social justice-oriented language teachers.
