    Envisioning Post-Whiteness ELT
    A 24-Hour Twitter Chat 

    Hosted by @JPBGerald with TESOL B-MEIS and NYS TESOL SCAR


    Our goals:

    • Examine racism and Whiteness into language teaching and learning
    • Reject the White-centric canon
    • Encourage participants to examine their own Whiteness and how it affects their teaching and learning

    Texts and resources:

    To make the conversation more fluid and dynamic, we will use quotes from JPB Gerald's latest work with Scott Stillar and Dr. Vijay A. Ramjattan, After Whiteness, published on Language Magazine. Link to text: https://www.languagemagazine.com/2021/05/17/after-whiteness/
