The workshop "Teaching Foreign Languages to Immigrant Students in Insecure Times" has been rescheduled for Wednesday, March 28 from 12:15 pm - 2:00 pm.
Recent proposals to reverse immigration policies are creating a climate of insecurity among immigrant communities and negatively impacting segments of the students we teach. Heightened pedagogical awareness and the application of cultural sensibilities toward the learning needs of students experiencing increased vulnerability are needed now more than ever.
This workshop aims to share recent pedagogical research on teaching immigrant communities, specifically as it applies to foreign language instruction, and deliver experiential strategies and a suite of exercises that are immediately applicable to the foreign language and intensive writing classroom.
The workshop will be divided into a free hour (12:15 pm-1:30 pm) component covering pedagogy, followed by a hands-on activity (1:30 pm-2:00 pm).
We encourage faculty to attend for both components but understand that some will have to leave after free hour.
Date: Wednesday, March 28, 2018
Time: 12:15 pm to 2:00 pm (lunch from 12 noon)
Location: Queens Hall, Room 350A
Elena Mancini, European Languages & Literatures, Queens College
