Preparing Students to be Advocates

Many thanks to Dolores Perillan for forwarding this plenary presentation from a recent American Association of Teacher of Spanish and Portuguese event. The messages here, that students must learn not only content, but also a greater understanding of their role as advocates and political actors for positive change, are relevant to higher education broadly as well as to the intended audience of language educators.
