Event description

Description

This course is for non-member district staff ONLY! The course is being offered on January 31, 2018, for WMEP member district staff.

Course Description

This course will move participants through an analysis of teaching that begins with the realities, ideologies, and articulations of youth of color to shift perceptions of cultural deficits into potential academic strengths that are also critical. Humanizing pedagogies draw on culturally relevant, critical pedagogical, and critical literacy to allow young people to explore the depths of their unresolved historical grief while helping to cultivate a deeper knowledge of and compassion for self, mobilizing efforts to develop a deeper sense of control over their collective lives. Towards this end, this course offers participants opportunities to critically analyze their practices to more effectively serve the holistic needs of students of historically underserved cultural groups in the United States. Finally, this workshop will discuss the relevance of research findings that suggest (A) agitating students politically, (B) arousing their critical curiosity, and (C) inspiring self and social transformation are important practices of humanizing education of children of color across grade levels and subject areas.
