I had a motorcycle when I was younger. I had it long enough to know that – no blame – cars were not trained in SEEING motorcycles, esp. at intersections. I sold it after too many close calls.
So it is with kids of color in language classrooms. We have to learn to SEE differently in our work. Do we SEE all of our students in either our online or physical classrooms? Or do some of our students leave our classrooms each June without having been able to function as an actual person that year?
