Spilling the tea: Stories of addressing racism and controversial issues in second language classrooms

June 1, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

In this presentation, we share personal stories that occurred in our ENL classrooms, where we were confronted with racism among students within those learning spaces. Our stories speak directly to the importance of engaging in courageous conversations about the biases and cultural misunderstandings students might bring into the classroom, and how those biases and cultural misunderstandings might be connected to racism. As such, we will divide our workshop into three main sections: (1) introducing ourselves and our stories, (2) engaging in active discussions in break-out rooms about racism, particularly in language classrooms, and (3) we will end our conversation with thoughts and recommendations for teachers on how to address racism in their learning spaces.
