On the issue of “Students Rights to Their Own Language” as a whole I feel as if we
decided to add language diversity to the classroom it would better our society but, there would besome positive and negative issues if the change was to occur. The whole idea of languagediversity is a big controversy because of the many ideals that could happen if there was a change
from “Standard English” to various dialects. I feel as if we do decide to add a variety
of languageto a society as whole would be better because there would be more diversity and the alreadystrong cultural boundaries would be torn down a little. If we did decide to diversify languagewithin the classroom we would have to take many steps and make some changes so the newly
installed dialects could fit inside a teacher’s lesson plan. Also I feel as if I should speak about
how it will be positive and negative. I feel so strongly on this issue because I feel like I can relateto the whole situat
ion and just because someone doesn’t speak a specific language or talks a
certain way they should not be treated any different or isolated from when it comes to learningother languages within the classroom.
I can recount a lot of experiences within my advanced
placement English class in high school where because I didn’t speak a certain way I was thought
to be illiterate or not being capable of doing the work because of the certain context I put wordsin different situations. Just because people speak a c
ertain way that doesn’t mean that thereilliterate or ignorant it’s just that it’s what there used to being around.
With my ideas in mind Ihope to diversify the classrooms and let every culture express themselves within the classroomsetting. My target audience is the 9
