In so many ways the world language classroom is uniquely suited to the work of teaching for and about social justice. Language teachers have the opportunity to challenge bias and stereotyping; build cultural competence; promote global citizenship and collaboration; and nurture student voice and agency. Our spring conference (Saturday April 7th) draws inspiration from the work of renowned teacher, author and multicultural educator Sonia Nieto. Professor Sonia Nieto and her daughter, ELL and Spanish teacher Alicia López, will keynote our program. We welcome K-12 teachers of all world languages (including Arabic, Chinese, French, Japanese, and Spanish) to come think with us about a social justice approach to second-language learning.   

Open to all K-12 educators.
