Event description

Description

NOTE: SPACE IS LIMITED AND REGISTRATION MUST BE RECEIVED BY OCTOBER 23RD.

This symposium will address ways teachers, future teachers, teacher educators, administrators, and community members can understand and respond to poverty using their sphere of influence.

Participants will:

(1) unpack the “culture of poverty” myth.

(2) explore structural and systemic aspects of poverty in our schools and communities.

(3) gather teaching content, pedagogy, and resources for meeting the needs of students in poverty.

Keynote speaker:

Dr. Paul Gorski, is an author, speaker, activist, and an Associate Professor, Integrative Studies (Social Justice & Human Rights) at George Mason University. Paul is the founder of EdChange, a coalition of educators and activists providing professional development on educational equity, creating resources for fellow educators and activists, and modeling a commitment to moving beyond celebrating the joys of diversity and toward equity literacy in schools and communities. His publications include Reaching and Teaching Students in Poverty: Strategies for Erasing the Opportunity Gap (2013) and The Poverty and Education Reader: A Call for Equity in Many Voices edited with Julie Landsman.

We look forward to seeing you at the symposium on November 11th (RU, Cook Hall and Peters Hall, 8:00-4:00)!
