Episode 6: Bringing Language to Life: A Conversation with Parthena Draggett

How can young people learn of their own language and cultural identities by learning those of others?

As you listen to this warm and compassionate conversation with educator and author Parthena Draggett, I invite you to think about how to bring language to life–and life to our own linguistic and cultural identities.
