Co-constructing Practices to Help Students with Disabilities Move toward Proficiency

With Wade Edwards: Associate Dean and Professor of French, Cook-Cole College of Arts and Sciences, Longwood University. Co-author of Disability and World Language Learning: Inclusive Teaching for Diverse Learners


ACTFL’s Statement on Diversity and Inclusion in World Language Teaching and Learning (2019) specifically mentions disability as a learner attribute that instructors should be careful not to overlook. Participants in this session will: consider a pedagogy of inclusion that addresses common barriers to students with disabilities; discuss relevant case studies developed at Longwood University that focus on the intersection of disability and language learning; and co-construct strategies that can help lead students to proficiency.
