Discourse of Advocacy: Student Learners’ Critical Reflections on Working with Spanish-speaking Immigrant Students

    • reflection

On Monday, March 28th from noon to 1:30, join us for our final workshop of the semester:
"Discourse of Advocacy: Student Learners’ Critical Reflections on Working with Spanish-Speaking Immigrant Students" at the Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity conference room, Bryan Center.

Join us to dive deeper into the topic of critical reflection. We will discuss the chapter “Discourse of Advocacy: Student Learners’ Critical Reflections on Working with Spanish-speaking Immigrant Students” from PROBLEMATIZING SERVICE-LEARNING. It examines the use of language as a means of establishing cultural power and looks at the stereotypes and assumptions imbedded in our discourse. The research questions that drive this study include: What forms of discourse do student learners generate as they reflect on their S-L experiences?, How do student learners’ reflections indicate awareness of social and cultural problems that immigrants and their children face?, and How critical are student learners' discourses toward the advocacy for immigrants? We will explore how these questions apply to our own context. Join us in discussing this article. You can read it here.
