Addressing Issues of Social Justice

As world language educators, we are dedicated to equality, inclusion, and  diversity. It is our responsibility to create a safe, supportive, and open classroom environment in which students learn to embrace the diversity of our world and respect our differences. We must help future generations develop world views that value and respect not only our similarities, but also our differences.

SCOLT encourages all teachers to be intentional and reflective in addressing issues of social justice. We are committed to helping teachers make a difference in the lives of their students. As such, we recommend these resources. Also, please see SCOLT’s recorded webinar on this topic.

SCOLT 2020 Webinars

Several SCOLT partners have offered to provide webinars to help address language educators’ needs at this time. We appreciate their generosity, and the time and effort put forth by all involved!  See below for links to the recorded webinars.
