Our new book, We Do Language: English Language Variation in the Secondary English Classroom, is the book of the month at the College of William & Mary!
Watch the video below to learn about our research process for the book. Our message to secondary English educators: “Don’t leave a student’s decision whether – and where – to attend college solely to guidance counselors, parents, after-school programs and coaches. They’re your students. Incorporate the college decision into your curriculum.”
Anne has been featured on With Good Reason radio on NPR about our NSF-funded work on language and culture in STEM classrooms. There’s also a great interview with Dr. Freeman Hrabowski at UMBC about educating all students to succeed in science and engineering and why it matters!
Listen to the story here!
“Much bigger than technology or classroom space, the most important factor in determining student success is having a good teacher. In two 15-minute sessions, Bob Pianta (University of Virginia) can tell whether a teacher is good or bad—regardless of their subject matter. Plus: Heralded by Time as one of the ten best college presidents, Freeman Hrabowski (University of Maryland, Baltimore County) has helped build UMBC’s reputation as a top school for students of color in STEM fields. And: Surprisingly, sometimes the problem in math class is not with numbers, but with words. Anne Charity Hudley (College of William and Mary) believes teachers need to be more aware of how cultural language differences can put some students at a disadvantage in the classroom.”
