6. Transformative Language Education for All: Intercultural Citizenship and Social Justice

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to learn and experience how teachers and teacher educators can transform language classrooms to increase critical thinking among learners, challenge learners with social justice topics, and systematically promote students’ development of intercultural citizenship (Byram, 2008). Using practical frameworks and examples in multiple languages for different proficiency levels, participants will evaluate a variety of ideas and also gain hands-on practice that can be applied to their own classrooms. We will focus on the interpretation of meaningful input and multimodal interaction with authentic resources and content in the target language to develop students’ proficiency as well as their plurilingual and pluricultural identities.
