Course Overview and Objectives

This course is grounded in content from linguistics and language education. The theoretical frameworks for this course include both Sociolinguistics and Critical Race Theory. From Sociolinguistics, the learner will examine the intersection of language and society; and from Critical Race Theory, the learner will examine the role of race in language and society. Students will reflect on their social and academic language experiences, as well as examine language experiences of various populations, from the perspectives of multiple subgroups. We will also discuss "equity" throughout the course.
