This month, we will consider the Culture of Multiliterate & Polylingual Friendly Educational Spaces.
On Thursday (3/6) 8 PM EST:
- What are the experiences of students whose lives and practices traverse spatial, textual, and digital borders?
- What are the social and ideological forces that shape the available resources multiliterate and multilingual youth have access to?
- What implications in instructional practices and principles should we consider?
