Although culturally responsive instruction is by nature student centered, the work of creating an inclusive school environment that respects and reflects all learners begins with teachers themselves.
At this ILA Intensive, we’ll look at how literacy educators can examine their own identities, as well as the effects their own backgrounds and implicit biases have on teaching and learning. Presenters will address how to question oppressive systems and policies that impact learner outcomes—and proactive steps literacy and school leaders can take to dismantle them.
This three-hour event features a keynote by Gloria Ladson-Billings, whose groundbreaking work on culturally relevant pedagogy forms the foundation of instruction that both acknowledges the nuances of intersectionality and sets students from all cultural backgrounds up for greater success.
