This forum will explore critical pedagogy as it applies to issues of student and teacher resistance, complemented by strategies for empowerment. Discussions will address instructor authority within informed critical resistance; issues of accessibility and inclusivity; leveraging the interplay of enjoyment and motivation; instructor resistance to student voices; and the political underpinnings to our disengagement with grammar.
