Equity Issue Paper and Presentation

This project provides the opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge of the history, research, policy and current practices in ESOL or Foreign/World Language education in relation to an equity issue related to this course that is currently evident in schools/classrooms. Based on content from this course and careful thinking about practices/policies in school settings, you and a partner will identify a salient equity issue (for example, systemic racism’s impact on student discipline, access to advanced coursework, consideration for gifted and talented education, stereotyping and stereotype threat, bias/deficit lens, inappropriate placement in special education, etc.). Locate, read, and synthesize relevant research (minimum of five scholarly sources) related to the equity issue. Recommend strategies/brief action plan, linked to the research, to address this equity issue in a school setting. Gather feedback from colleagues/peers in this course about your recommendations.
