Linguistic and Literacy Justice in K-12 STEM for Linguistically Marginalized Students in New Mexico:
A Biliteracy Approach
Armando Garza Ayala, Ph.D.
In light of the Martinez and Yazzie Lawsuits, NM Bilingual Education teachers could benefit from breaking old paradigms and adopting new visions for teaching their students regardless their backgrounds. In this interactive hands-on workshop-conversation and lesson planning, we will explore these questions, and discuss how we can promote linguistic and literacy justice in education for linguistically marginalized students in NM through culturally and linguistically responsive and biliteracy approaches to teaching K-12 STEM. We will be able to recognize and adopt three types of learning objectives: (1) content (2) language; and (3) biliteracy objective/s.
Through this approach, K-12 STEM Bilingual Education teachers in the State likely become social/racial justice agents. Now more than ever, NM students deserve this linguistic and literacy justice in STEM learning!
