“GRIT-X Talks Showcase Experiences of Outstanding Faculty and Alumni ‘from Outer Space to Inner Space”

October 26, 2017

I was honored to be asked to give a “GRIT-X” micro-talk at UMBC, called “The Social Life of Speech.” As this recent UMBC News article describes the event, “Demonstrating the value of diverse linguistic patterns in the classroom shows students they are valued, which makes them likely to value school, Mallinson explains. Overall, educators must ‘give the students the tools they need to succeed on the tests that we require of them, while sustaining and empowering their diverse voices,’ she says, ‘so that we can have all our students with all their diverse voices right here in the front row of our classes at UMBC.’”
