Workshop: Culturally Sustaining Pedagogies and Teaching for Black Lives [FULL]

A FREE Workshop Series for K-12 Educators

This series is now FULL and the waitlist is closed. 

Our students are increasingly racially, culturally, economically, and linguistically diverse. Because education is a civil right, how do we create academically rich and socially just educational contexts and opportunities for all of our students? This workshop series will provide space for practitioners to learn strategies for enacting culturally sustaining pedagogy, described by education scholar Django Paris as a way for educators to support racial, cultural, and linguistic diversity in the classroom, which is a form of social justice education. In particular, this workshop series will focus on looking to history to deepen our collective understanding of present day issues. More info here.

This free series for K-12 educators is facilitated by Keisha L. Green (Department of Teacher Education and Curriculum Studies, UMass). The first workshop will feature a guest lecture by Erika Slocumb, PhD Candidate in the W.E.B. Du Bois Department of Afro-American Studies at UMass Amherst.
