Subject: Re: political correctness at ncte
I've only been reading some of this thread, because of the press of local
business. But since the discussion has turned to political correctness,
let me play Allan for a moment and invite/remind all ADS members and
participants in the ADS-L that our ADS-sponsored session at NCTE in Orlando
(Friday, Nov. 18, at 2:30) will deal with "Political Correctness, Language,
and the Classroom." Speakers will be Smokey Daniels, Vivian Davis, and me.
I don't what the others are going to talk about exactly, but I promise that
my talk will deal not only with some of the issues discussed in this forum
but also with my Nexis search of the terms political correctness and
politically correct, and with ways we can turn this issue into an
investigation of language use with our students.
Hope to see you all down in Orlando. And remember to wear your Mickey ears.
