Time: February 26, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Join us on Thursday, February 26 for Teachers Talking. The topic will be: "Did I really just say that? eLanguage in the Classroom. Have you ever found yourself saying something inappropriate in class like "you guys eor "Are you deaf? eor other cringe-inducing things, where you wish you could take it back? Or do you hear students using inappropriate language and wonder how to address it? Come have lunch and learn about how to recognize your own language biases, leave them at the classroom door, deal with them when they slip into the room, and maybe even get rid of them completely! We will address two issues: what language do we use without thinking? How can we respond effectively when we do so? Program at 11:30 am and again at 12:30 pm. Free lunch at Three Crowns buffet, then meet in the St Peter Room.
