UT College of Arts & Sciences: Linguistic Diversity in the Classroom

  • November 19, 2020

Category: Free event and Lectures & discussions

Jessi Grieser, Assistant Professor, Department of English

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.
