Share Socioeconomic Status and Class: Identity, Culture and Diversity

Event Details

This workshop is an occasion to lean into the challenges, opportunities and responsibility to educate students and adults about socioeconomics and class. We’ll consider how our own identities position us in conversations about socioeconomic and class diversity, as we explore everyday SES and class challenges in our communities. Participants will identify helpful strategies, tools and language to have intentional and growth-ful conversations with diverse students, colleagues and families.

 

Participants in this workshop will leave with:

  • Working definitions of key concepts
  • Current research on human development and effective educational practice
  • “Try tomorrow” (Pollock, 2008) tools for everyday practice
  • Guiding questions and strategies
