Critical Language Pedagogy is an approach to teaching about language that acknowledges power, privilege, identity and racism in how we use and talk about language and dialects. Facilitated by Dr. Amanda J. Godley, this talk will describe how Critical Language Pedagogy redefines language and literacy education and how 300 teachers from across the U.S. learned to enact it. A limited quantity of Dr. Godley's book, Critical Language Pedagogy: Interrogating Language, Dialects, and Power in Teacher Education will be available for registrants.
