Best Practices for Reaching Maginalized Students: Understanding How Issues of Diversity and Socio-Economics Impact Student Learning
The purpose of this full day training is to explore the obstacles that many educators face when working with underprivileged or marginalized students. The workshop will be divided into two parts: Diversity (Part I) and Poverty (Part II). Part I will focus on training educators to understand topics of Diversity and Inclusion as they pertain to Education. Part I will include discussion on topics such as defining and examining the terms "race" and "ethnicity", understanding stereotypes, understanding how stereotypes manifest in the classroom, and how individuals can reflect on personal (implicit) biases which can assist in the creation of an inclusive environment in a classroom setting. Part II will focus on understanding how socio-economic factors impact student learning, particularly for underprivileged students. Educators will be trained on understanding how socio-economic factors impact students on a social, psychological, and physiological level. Both Parts I and II will conclude with exploring specific, actionable strategies (tailored to unique student groups) that will assist educators in understanding what they can do in classroom settings to mitigate obstacles regarding these topics and increase student learning.
