With Different Eyes Conference

November 2 7:45 am - 3:00 pm

UCLA Writing Project

Saturday, November 2, 2019 at UCLA in Moore Hall
7:45 AM – 3:00 PM

The UCLA Writing Project and Center X invite you to the 29th With Different Eyes Conference. We focus on access and equity for all students, with English learners center stage. And we define our multilingual students broadly: newcomers to the United States, students who have been in the U.S. for several years, speakers of African American English and indigenous languages. Rooted in a social justice stance and aligned with the Common Core State Standards, our conference poses questions and sheds light on the joys and challenges of teaching and learning in urban classrooms.

Our theme this year is “Writing and Speaking with Power and Heart.”
