Who Should Take This Course
This course is for educators wanting to closely examine how language can perpetuate social inequities individually and systemically. Exclusionary language, such as “non-white” and “non-essential”, is embedded in the English language and undermines the ability of schools to educate students with diverse cultural backgrounds.
What You Will Learn
In this training, you will discuss the forms of exclusionary language and messages that are prevalent in educational settings and in the larger culture, analyze how this is a detriment to positive school climate for students and staff, and discuss appropriate personal and professional responses to its use.
