"Teaching Students to Enter the Discourse"
w/ Marie Levey Pabst
Empowering our students to share their authentic voices means teaching them to actively engage in civic, academic and social discourse. In this workshop, you learn a simple and powerful structure that can shape any text-based, topic-based, or research-based unit to push students to creatively contribute to the social, civic and academic discourses.
"Moving to Color Brave: Adjusting Our Lens to Talk about the R-Wordrse"
w/ Cathy Sosnowski
Often in our quest to be seen as not racist, we lay claim to being colorblind without understanding how that refusal to talk about the R-word, race, is itself a problem. In this workshop we will mine the lenses we view the world through, assess their impact on that view, and grow our ability to change the lenses we use.
