Creating Educational Equity in the Classroom and School
Learn how bias is impacting your school and classroom. Then, learn how to create an equitable environment. Typically, the first interactive workshop lays the groundwork. In the next set of workshops, teachers will be asked to bring some of your lesson plans or syllabus, classroom rules and textbooks, while administrators and staff bring policies, procedures, and other issues with them. All groups learn strategies to make their environment equitable and ways to handle potential opposition are discussed. This is designed for K-12 and university level institutions. Often done during ProD days, workshops are 3 hours long and can be done in 90-minute blocks over time (e.g., part 1 in the fall and part 2 in the spring).
