5th Annual Conference on Second-Language Learning and Disabilities with guest speaker Spanish filmmaker Miguel Ángel Font Bisier This conference aims to support instructors to build a more diverse, anti-oppressive curriculum for their world language classes that represents all our students’ differences and creates a classroom climate of tolerance and inclusion. To do so, this conference’s presentations and interactive workshops will discuss the research in the field and pedagogical strategies that help us include, represent, and accommodate students with disabilities.
