Julianne Scullen, Ed.S.
Lee, P. A Professional Development Presentation for Code-Switching (2019) Code-switching is a nationwide phenomenon that occurs to give meaning to their listeners. This happens especially in the classroom in the education realm. With the increased diversity of languages within schools, this capstone project seeks to bring awareness of this occurrence to the public of everyday professionals who are working within the realm of education. It seeks to identify the occurrences of when code-switching happens and the reasoning for it. It addresses theories, methods and framework of code-switching, such as the Markedness Model and Culturally Responsive Teaching. In the Markedness Model, the speaker has a purpose to why they code-switch between their first and second language. In addition, Culturally Responsive Teaching serves as the foundation in which a Professional Development is created from. The goal is to bring awareness of the use of code-switching in one’s classroom as well as to when it happens. As a result of being aware and understanding when and how code-switching occurs educators, staff members and administrators will be able to utilize it as a linguistics tool in their teaching.
