Accountable Talk: Convos That Avoid Privileged Dominance
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Classroom conversations and everyday talk that has anything to do with culture or identity can at times be misunderstood or worse yet alienate and offend. We will explore a few strategies and norms that can be implemented to improve class conversations. Participants will investigate microaggressions and unconscious bias to better monitor our everyday talk and wrap with important language shifts we can use with families, colleagues, and students. To close the session, a lengthy resource bank (prof books, kid lit, lesson plans, social media accounts, podcasts etc.) will be provided to continue the heart and mind work around equity, diversity, and cultural responsiveness.

Diverse Literature to Increase Visibility
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

In this workshop participants will share their favorite books written by authors from marginalized communities (feel free to bring a copy if you'd like!). We will use f to post quick book talks to create a touchstone of #BookLove to look back on later. We'll wrap with a quick discussion on intersectionalism and then spend the remainder of the time creating personalized book lists that increase visibility of marginalized communities tailored to units of study for the learners they serve.
