Who Should Take This Course
Educators who want to take a closer look at some of the underlying and systemic causes for persistent achievement disparities, using the lens of Culturally Relevant Pedagogy.
What You Will Learn
You will examine leadership practices and instructional strategies that ensure the voices of ALL students are heard and reflected in the learning environment as an effort to eliminate the racial achievement disparities that exist in schools. You will engage in meaningful dialogue while being challenged to critically reflect on your own practice. Exemplars from the field will be used to demonstrate effective current practices that are making a difference for children who would be considered “At-risk”; and you will be asked to create a personal action plan and set it in motion.
What Others Are Saying About This Course
Thank you for not making a point to demean anyone. We all can open our eyes to other people's stories and recognize how we see others. It is the spirit of the person and the belief they can learn that I reach for. I also want my students to see 'me' — good days and errors to grow from.— Carolyn R.
Thank you for challenging our district in a way that is absolutely needed and thank you for your relevant, thoughtful & careful responses to the many excuses so many of us give.— Sara I.
