Barrow presents at NCSS

Elizabeth Barrow, Ed.D.

Elizabeth Barrow, Ed.D., assistant professor in the Department of Teaching and Learning, participated in a roundtable presentation at the 97th annual conference of the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) held November 17-19 in San Francisco, CA.

Barrow’s presentation, titled “Sociolinguistic Awareness: How Student-Teaching Abroad Raises Awareness About the Importance of Language,” highlighted how four pre-service teachers came to understand the importance of language during a one-month student teaching and internship. As part of a larger study, participants, with no specific cultural sensitivity training, were asked to define intercultural competence (ICC) at various points throughout their experience (pre-departure, during the internship, and after re-entry).
