Retreat Looks at Reducing Linguistic Bias in Education
The Teaching Academy will host a hybrid Fall Retreat, with in-person sessions held at Gordon Commons and virtual sessions held via Zoom, on Friday, Sept. 30, 9‒11 a.m. This year’s theme is “Addressing Linguistic Bias to Support All Learners.” The retreat will explore and address linguistic bias to better support learners for whom a language other than English is their first language, as well as learners for whom academic standard varieties of English are not their dominant language. Doors and Zoom open at 8:30 a.m. Breakfast and light refreshments will be served at Gordon Commons. Register in advance.
