Critical Approaches to Heritage Language Education. A conversation with J. Eik Diggs & Dr Cushing-Leubner
In this episode, I sit down with J. Eik Diggs & Dr Jenna Cushing-Leubner to discuss their program(s) on Heritage language education.
They discuss the program(s) in detail and share their personal stories and motivations for creating their "Growing Biliteries series" & "Certificate in Heritage Language/Late Bilingual Education" program(s).
J. and Jenna take us on a journey of how we as educators can examine our teaching practices through a critical lens and move our pedagogy toward creating a more culturally and linguistically sustaining classroom.
They explain how this course can assist you in transforming your teaching and learning space into a community based, self-determining, language arts classroom that centers the multiethnic/multilingual students that fill our learning spaces.
If you are a Heritage language educator, or perhaps you will be in the near future, this podcast and this course are for you.
