    Paths towards decolonization: dismantling native speakerism


    The NYS TESOL Advocacy Committee cordially invites you to participate in this asynchronous discussion event:


    "Bringing back a tradition we started last year, but in a different format, the Advocacy would like to host asynchronous discussions in TESOL, particularly centered on advancing equity and attempts to decolonize the field. The logistics will be explained to those who reply with interest, but essentially we will share readings/materials and create a thread that people can respond to, with a new set of materials every week or two. If you are interested in participating in these discussions, please contact Dr. JPB Gerald at by Monday, July 4th, and we will be in touch."
