Honrando Voces Diversas: A Framework for Equity-Minded Teaching Partnerships
Higher education perpetuates assimilationist ideas at odds with how an increasingly diverse student population makes meaning of their learning experiences. There is a heightened exigence to engage in inclusive and equity-minded teaching practices at Hispanic Serving Institutions where structural inequalities still prevail due to whiteness and monolingual racism. To challenge systemic inequities, we must see our students as essential partners in the development and revision of teaching and learning practices. In this reflective piece, we draw our lived partnership experiences to offer a framework for embracing college students’ full linguistic and cultural repertoires to build reciprocal, equity-minded, and linguistically responsive student and teacher partnerships in higher education.
