Description

Dwelling in the third space: Indigenous Maya and Kichwa students in U.S. K-12 and Higher Education Classrooms

In this webinar, I explore how Indigenous Maya and Kichwa students discover and negotiate linguistic and social spaces of belonging in K-12 and higher education English classrooms. Relying on my research and available literature, I share findings with clear, practical implications for practitioners supporting Indigenous English learners in U.S. classrooms.
