Removing Accent Bias in the Classroom: Where Technological Excellence Meets Human Intelligence
Emergent Bilinguals need speaking practice to successfully become bilingual or multilingual. However, some of these students don’t have opportunities to speak in the classroom or feel nervous to do so because they speak with an accent. Understanding the history of accents in the classroom and reflecting on potential unconscious biases can help teachers better serve their Emergent Bilingual students.
Join Lexia’s Senior Director of Emergent Bilingual Curriculum, Maya Goodall, on the Learning Leadership Society’s podcast as she discusses the history of accents in the classroom, how Emergent Bilinguals’ heritage languages inform their English language acquisition, and the value artificial intelligence can provide to teachers of Emergent Bilingual students.
