In these tense, polarized times, it’s important to consider the impact that all this tension has on our children and our classrooms. Ken Anderson, a speech language pathologist who works at Walt Whitman High School and is studying for his Ph.D. in Speech-Language Sciences and Disorders at Adelphi University, writes about the effect of political and cultural strife in high school classrooms, and talks about the insights he gleaned from a thought-provoking discussion he had with his high schoolers.
“These boys needed to understand the evolution of language and the implications of using certain words,” Anderson writes.
The ASHA Leader is the monthly newsmagazine for and about audiologists, speech-language pathologists, and speech, language and hearing scientists.
