Nancy Hornberger: “Multilingual Education Policy and Practice: Ten Certainties (Grounded in Indigenous Experience)”
May 25, 2011 @ 5:15 pm - 7:00 pm | Cowell Conference Room
Ethnic diversity and inequality, intercultural communication and contact, and global political and economic interdependence are acknowledged realities in today’s world. Multilingual education, too, is a fact of life, and though there are a great variety of contexts, models, contents, and developmental trajectories in multilingual education policy and practice, it is possible to discern continuities that characterize successful multilingual education wherever it is found. My emphasis here is on what we know and are sure of, analytically formulated as ten certainties and illustrated by empirical research.
This talk is presented by the Language Program Colloquium Series.
