UNM research reveals inequalities in COVID-19 information for Spanish-speakers

Check this out!!!

S&P graduate students Alonso Anara, Kory Apodaca-Cordova, Fatima Dutra, Rachael Newsom and Victoria Pena-Parr worked on a project under Prof. Damian Wilson that analyzed the language inequalities for Spanish-speakers during the COVID pandemic.

KOB interviewed our students about their study!

https://www.kob.com/new-mexico-news/unm-research-reveals-inequalities-in-covid-19-information-for-spanish-speakers/6106189/?cat=500

A new analysis from UNM is revealing some startling inequalities in the way New Mexico is communicating critical COVID-19 information to non-English speakers, specifically residents who speak Spanish.

Hi, I am Tamara Bell Boyle, Ed.D.. I am researching educator's preparedness. How prepared were you prior to COVID-19 pandemic quarantine (i.e., March of 2020 until June 2020, the end of the United States (US) academic year of 2019-2020)? According to "Coronavirus 'Confusion': Teachers Had Little Training for How to Do Online Classes", written on April 17, 2020, “Many teachers received a couple of days of training before being asked to overhaul nearly every facet of their job. The lucky ones had a couple weeks”. Was this true for you? In addition, in "The CHLOE 4: Navigating the Mainstream, The Changing Landscape of Online Education", which was published March 24, 2020 provided the following comment: "Mounting successful online courses requires time, effort, and expertise that are likely in short supply under emergency conditions. The immediate goal should be to facilitate communication between faculty and students on the remaining tasks and assignments necessary to complete course requirements, and to help sustain campus communities in these difficult times". However, did your educational institutions do more? For example, in "How K–12 Schools Map Paths to Effective Hybrid Learning", published January 05, 2021, discussed how the Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum at Leander Independent School District (Leander ISD), in Texas, explained “We can create documents, resources and exemplary lessons, but unless our teachers understand how virtual teaching is different from teaching in person, it’s really going to be a barrier for them” and understanding the possible barrier, for the 2020-2021 academic year, Leander ISD created a summer on-line learning experience for their teachers. Did your educational institution do something similar over the 2020 summer? What about the summer of 2021? The questionnaire is in chronological order. The questionnaire starts with some questions prior (i.e., the academic year of 2018-2019) to COVID-19 pandemic quarantine (i.e., March of 2020) to allow the research to have a baseline. The questionnaire continues in a chronological order and ends with your thoughts/expectations about this academic year (2021-2022). Your responses will be confidential and the survey should take approximately 30 minutes. Prior research includes, but not limited to, "Factors Relating to Non-completion of Doctoral Degree in Education", which was presented at Mary Immaculate College International Conference, on May 25, 2018, in Limerick, Ireland. YouTube link is: https://youtu.be/fqUf6HHAPk8 From that research I wrote a paper "Another Option for Doctoral-non-completer-students Who Wish to Complete their Ed.D." and presented at the Canada International Conference on Education (CICE-2021) in collaboration with World Congress on Education (WCE-2021), on June 24, 2021, at the University of Toronto Mississauga, Canada (Synchronous-online setting via Zoom) YouTube link is: https://youtu.be/jKothiuyad4 If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at [email protected]. In addition, I would really appreciate if you could please like and share my questionnaire, even if you are not an educator. Thank you in advance. https://forms.gle/EpAgCgrafy4nCj488
Hola a todos. Os ofrezco mi obra sobre el español y el Quijote. Estoy seguro que os sería muy útil en vuestro trabajo o estudios. Su precio es de 20 € más gastos de envío. Más información: tuslibros.net. Gracias y saludos.
¿Qué tal? Quiero invitarlos a este evento académico organizado por la Universidad Nacional de México. Totalmente gratuito. Y se darán constancias de asistencia. Gracias.
Really nice write-up in the UNM Press Room.
Yo elegì el drama "El hombre que se convirtiò en perro" del argentino Osvaldo Dragùn por su critica acuta al capitalsimo y a los males que cause al hombre y mas. La forma de arte que elegì fue un dibujo.
Yo elegí el poema “Sombras de los días a venir” de Alejandra Pizarnik porque te hace pensar en la muerte y lo que significa morir. La forma de arte que elegí fue un dibujo.
Aurelia Chávez @ Carmen Julia Holguín SPAN 307 3 de mayo, 2020 Eligí la obra "Padre nuestro que estás en el cielo" por José Leandro Urbina y él es de Chile. Me gusta este cuento porque es un microcuento. El cuento es corto, pero tiene un significado más profundo que lo que está escrito. Elegí hacer un pintura de cianotipia. Elegí este proceso porque las luces del sol activa el color, similar a los rayos que bajan del cielo. La puerta representa el paso al cielo, también al padre en el cuento que se esconde en el ático lejos de los soldados. Esta obra se llama " La puerta al paraíso "
Gentry Haukbeo Carmen Julia Holguín SPAN 307 3 de Mayo, 2020 Elegí la narrativa "Las medias rojas" de Emilia Pardo Bazán. Ella es de España y me gusta que los temas de esta historia son reales y, por lo tanto, relacionados. Elegí hacer un dibujo que mostrara el contraste entre el futuro potencial de Ildara y la vida que se ve obligada a vivir. La dibujé y las medias rojas encadenadas mientras el barco hacia una vida mejor parte sin ella. Este obra se llama “Un día tarde un dólar corto”.
Monse Camarena-Leija @Carmen Julia Holguín SPAN 307 2 de Mayo, 2020 Para mi proyecto final, elegí "Tu me quieres blanca" de Alfonsina Storni. Me gustó este poema porque tiene un tono feminista. Storni se enfoca en cómo los hombres esperan que las mujeres sean perfectas. A lo largo del poema, parece que los hombres quieren que las mujeres sean blancas y puras, pero Storni muestra que había mucha hipocresía en esto porque los hombres no tenían esos mismos estándares. Los hombres solo se centraron en lo "malo" y en los "errores" de las mujeres, aunque los hombres también tienen sus rasgos negativos. El tema de la hipocresía de los hombres y la opresión de las mujeres era evidente durante todo el poema. Dibujé una imagen de una mujer, blanca y pura, para mostrar los estándares que los hombres tienen para las mujeres. La mujer esta sola y esta llorando porque los estándares que los hombres tienen para las mujeres no son justos. Yo quería que los sentimientos de la mujer serán mostrados a través del ambiente oscuro, nublado y lluvioso.
