MCLCC Presents: Wicked Souls and Bodies

Wicked Souls and Bodies: Evil Spirits, Sexuality, Gender, and Violence in the Lore of the African Diaspora Jacqueline Couti, Gisele Anatol, Paula Sato, Matthew J. Pettway University of Kentucky Wednesday, February 3, 2016, 5:00pm to 7:00pm, Fine Arts Library, Study Room 1

While the African diaspora generally describes the dispersal(s) of African-descended peoples throughout the world from modernity to the present, it demands the sighting of various contexts, causes, results, and memories. This symposium’s focus on the African diaspora as articulated in transatlantic contexts provides a platform that underscores diversity and the human condition in a national and transnational manner. The cultural, linguistic, ethnic/racial, and generational dynamics of the Black Atlantic provide a fruitful intellectual context for exploring the roles of problematic acts of agency in oppressive spaces.

Language Talk - Episode 6

Our sixth Language Talk: KWLA podcast, Student Growth Goal Rubric, features host Laura Roché Youngworth discussing with Jillian Lykens, Ben McMaine, and Alicia Vinson the structure and application of the Fayette County World Language Student Growth Goal Rubrics. As they discuss what influenced and guided the rubrics, they paint a picture of how the SGG rubrics differ than rubrics traditionally used for formative and summative assessments. 

 

Accompanying this podcast is a webinar in which Jillian Lykens and Laura Roché share in more detail the rubric structures and how to implement them within the requirements of the KY's TPGES.  If you have an event or idea to share on the Outreach Clearinghouse, please contact Laura Roche or Jeanmarie Rouhier-Willoughby.
