Deep Dive and Teacher Inquiry Community: (Re)Claiming Language Study Group

Deep Dive and Teacher Inquiry Community: (Re)Claiming Language Study Group

You are invited to participate in an exciting Deep Dive and Teacher Inquiry Community hosted by the Northern California Writing Project (NCWP).

The workshop series will begin with a collaborative, deep dive into Dr. April Baker-Bell’s Linguistic Justice: Black Language, Literacy, Identity, and Pedagogy, Black Language before turning toward reflective action aimed at answering: (1) How does Anti-Black Linguistic racism operate in our own contexts? (2) How is White Linguistic supremacy maintained in our contexts? (3) How might we design learning spaces where students’ full linguistic repertoires are valued as more than a bridge to White Mainstream English? (4) What pedagogical innovations might be reimagined and enacted when we build from the claim that Black Lives and Language matter?

When:

The Study Group will consist of eight, one-hour long meetings on Tuesdays from 4-5 pm, Jan 12-March 9:

  • Jan 12, 19 & 26
  • Feb 2, 9, 16 & 23 (plus webinar with Baker-Bell on Wednesday, Feb 10, 4:00-5:00pm; see video from webinar below)
  • March 2 & 9

The series includes a special panel/webinar, “(Re)Claiming Languages: A Conversation with Language Scholars,” featuring Dr. April Baker-Bell (Professor, Departments of African American and African Studies and English at Michigan State University), author of Linguistic Justice: Black Language, Literacy, Identity, and Pedagogy (2020), in conversation with Chico State’s Dr. Sarah Trechter (Interim Assoc Vice President of International Education and Global Engagement and Professor of English) who studies the Lakhota, as well as language revitalization with the Nu’eta, and Dr. Aydé Enríquez-Loya (Associate Professor of English), who studies cultural rhetorics and femicides of Mexican/Mestiza women on the US/Mexican border. Facilitated by Dr. Kim Jaxon (Professor of English). Wednesday, Feb 10, 4:00-5:00, via Zoom. Open to all, including folks who may not be able to participate in our Deep Dive series.
