January 14, 2013 - Distinguished Educational Speaker Series

As part of the UC Davis School of Education’s Distinguished Educational Thinker Series, Professor Guadelupe Valdés gave a talk at UC Davis in January 2013 titled “Understanding Language in Schools.” Valdés argues that English learners must be given access to grade level content while they are learning English. “Writing is about ideas, but we pretend with English learners that language must emerge pristine before they can engage in the academic content. We must push for comprehension before focusing on production because it is most important for learning.”
