Join Nicole Lavonne Smith of Morningside Center for Teaching Social Responsibility and Share My Lesson for a discussion on equitable classrooms.

Available on Demand
FREE
REGISTER

In this session, we will engage in exercises, prompts and activities to demonstrate how we as anti-racist educators can create spaces where all students—and particularly students of color—can be affirmed and centered. We will share strategies for using aspects of culture (music, literature, movies, etc.) to address our students’ need to be seen, to have their voices heard and their experiences acknowledged. We will display how affirmation can and should be in honor of all of us, not just limited to some. Participants will come away with ideas and concrete strategies for creating a more equitable and engaging classroom environment.

Available for one hour of PD credit. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session that you can submit for your school's or district's approval. 

On Demand version is available in closed captioning in English and Spanish.

(The surveys haven't been working right for me lately so . . . .) Really makes one think! Quotes can stay with me a while and the ones that Ms. Smith highlighted were great. Much of what the equity movement explains is what I was told to do in undergraduate teacher ed., so I'll keep on and increase where I am AWARE. Thanks for another quality webinar. Specifically, I hope Ms. Smith (and her son) does more of these with her beautiful voice.

Excellent activities, excellent resources, and the presenter was knowledgeable. All the best practices were easy to implement no stress and her son was amazing as the assistant.

Fantastic job. Should be required before any teacher goes back to "the classroom".
