2017-2018 Saturday Seminar Series

Converging and Emerging


Saturday January 27, 2018:

Zaretta Hammond is a national education consultant and author of Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain: Promoting Authentic Engagement and Rigor for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students. She is a former English teacher and has been consulting and providing professional development around equity, literacy, and culturally responsive teaching for the past 21 years.

In this talk, Ms. Hammond, author of Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain will link the neuroscience of learning, social-emotional development and culturally responsive practices to help us understand how we can use responsive mindsets and moves to help traditionally marginalized students reclaim their confidence as learners in order to accelerate their own achievement.


Saturday March 24, 2018:

Tomás Galguera teaches language development methods and research methods courses in the Mills College School of Education in Oakland, California, where he has taught since 1996.His most recent research focuses on the development of pedagogical language knowledge among beginning teachers. Before Mills College, Professor Galguera was a Spanish bilingual teacher in Oakland.

Successful use of language in academic settings requires that students make decisions about what they say or write, how they do this, and for what purposes. This requires that teachers understand discourse-level features of language, which are not always apparent. It is necessary to design pedagogy and curricula that teach and reinforce successful uses or language. Participant Structures offer a potentially powerful approach. This presentation will consider Participant Structures from the perspective of science instruction and provide an opportunity to collaborate in brainstorming possible structures for multiple settings.

The Bay Area Writing, Science, and Mathematics Projects are creating the next generation professional growth experiences converging on the use of writing as a sense-making tool in the content areas.

We are emerging from our silos with a renewed commitment to help students understand the genres of language of math and science. To that end, we are generating new synergies to provide the teachers we serve with hands-on experiences to strengthen their capacity to support students communicating their conceptual understanding and reasoning.

Register for our re-designed set of Saturday Seminars for the 2017-18 school year. They will inspire and move you to advocate for your students’ full access to content and language.
