CWCA/ACCR Conference Keynote | Pedagogies of Hope in Multilingual Contexts | Dr. Laura Greenfield

Pedagogies of Hope in Multilingual Contexts

Many educators believe in theory that students’ diverse languages and identities should be valued, but feel stuck putting that theory into practice when it appears at odds with a greater need to provide students with language tools necessary for their future success. This talk will challenge both the defeatism and the inherent racism underlying many of the teaching and tutoring practices devised as a result, and consider opportunities for those involved in writing center work to responsibly and effectively bring their practices into greater alignment with their ethical commitments.
