Workshop description

Speakers of creoles, indigenous languages, and other vernaculars experience inequality in education. Entrenched beliefs that these languages are of lesser value led to poor learning outcomes. This workshop leads participants to discover the value of bilingualism and vernacular languages in their personal lives and learn how to inspire others to do the same. Participants are expected to be speakers of a creole, an indigenous language, a non-standard Spanish or Portuguese variety, or another vernacular, or to be intimately familiar with one.
