Linguistic Diversity in the Classroom

One way of being actively anti-racist in the classroom is being aware of language variation and appreciative of linguistic diversity. In her presentation, Jessi Grieser, assistant professor of English, will explore the workings of standard language ideology and the principle of linguistic subordination. She will explain how we can move away from "correct English" in our assessment strategies and toward inclusive strategies that respect language variation.

This presentation is part of the College of Arts and Sciences Conversations Allyship & Antiracism series.
