Code Switching

AWP Goal:  The AWP code-switching study will provide teachers with researched strategies for acknowledging the student’s identity and culture while teaching the language of wider communication. Students will benefit with an awareness of their linguistic heritage, which may lead them to embrace writing and improve test scores. The ultimate goal is to dispel myths about vernacular dialects that inhibit student writing and create blinders for those who grade the writing.
