Brown Bag Lunch Series: Linguistic Diversity
March 31, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Although the way people speak is tied to all other aspects of their identity, dialect and accent do not readily come to mind when we think about what diversity means. However, assumptions and biases that educators and administrators hold toward certain dialects can have both covert and overt ramifications on student performance and success. Attendees at this Brown Bag Lunch will work together to explore their own beliefs about language, to consider their individual roles.
