Using narrative and photographs as mediums of story, this workshop will engage teachers in the voices of first-generation, low-income students who are increasingly the new majority in our schools. Drawing on data from interviews, focus groups, and photographs, Dr. Rashne Jehangir will share student perspectives on their multiple identities and efforts to gain ownership of their learning. Together we will immersed in their lived experience and consider how to translate this knowledge into our classrooms and our school context.

ULA 2016/2017 Theme:

Make it Real: Instructional Leadership = Racial Equity

Minnesota school leaders must create an equitable and culturally responsive space for all students to learn. In order to drive change, racial equity must be at the center of instructional leadership. Join us for ULA’s 2016 to 2017 workshop series, to focus and reflect on what it means to be a racially equitable leader, providing expertise and vision for your district, your school, your team, your classroom.

For the past 21 years, the Urban Leadership Academy has provided programming and sustained dialogue focused on the continuous professional development of school leaders. Each workshop provides school leaders the opportunity to explore the complexity of leading learning organizations in order to better serve students. The ULA advisory board, comprised of district leaders from our seven member districts, continues to build on the educational strengths and challenges explored through each thematic series.

 

Workshops are held 8:30 AM - 2:30 PM. Continental breakfast and registration begins at 8:00 am, and lunch is provided as well.

CEUs earned: 5 (both teacher clock hour certificates and administrative CEU certificates are available)

 


We are committed to providing a comfortable, inclusive, and respectful environment for all members of our communities. If there is information you feel would be helpful for us to know, including disability, nursing mother, or other accommodation needs, please contact Jessica McLain, cehdidea@umn.edu.
