Education is not a neutral enterprise. As educators we can either choose to maintain the status quo, or reconsider and reimagine education centered in equity and inclusion. To prepare us for the latter, the morning session will focus on exploring inclusive and equity focused pedagogical practices—from Cornelius Minor’s focus on decolonizing education by getting to know your students to Tricia Ebarvia’s anti-racist literacy movement #DisruptTexts—we will engage in dialogue around what it means to build equity through our literacy instruction. In the afternoon we will shift from dialogue to action. Participants will engage in personal bias work, goal-setting, and curricular and pedagogical work that center equity and inclusion in the classroom. Please bring curricular and other materials to make the most out of the day.
