Preparing Teachers to Understand and Act Critically Upon Language Policies
Adriana González Moncada, Universidad de Antioquia, Colombia

Language policies influence language teaching, teacher education, and teacher development and often diminish the status of language teachers. Although understanding and acting critically upon language policies should be a key issue in language teacher education and professional development, we tend to exclude the analysis of language policies from our work with teachers. In this workshop, participants will explore ways to support language teachers’ involvement in language policies implementation.
