A moderated discussion that guides participants to a better understanding of their own backgrounds and histories, as well as misconceptions about the students they serve.
This session builds participant awareness of an asset-based approach to educating students. We situate the realities of immigration, migration, assimilation, and the retention of cultural identity as they pertain to achievement and efficacy.
With a focus on the significance of diversity, social justice, and the educational experiences of different cultural groups, we enable an increased understanding of societal complexity. We empower teachers to apply culturally relevant pedagogies in their classrooms.
The concluding session drives participants to evaluate their educational philosophies and articulate views on social justice that align with their values and classroom management practices.
