Teaching for a Living Democracy

Session 1
Joshua Block, SLA Students

Join a SLA teacher and SLA students as we explore ways to change the experience of school for students. We will discuss opportunities for students to use inquiry and project-based learning to produce complex work, reconfiguring understandings of themselves, their capabilities, and their roles in the world. Ideas in this session relate to the book Teaching for a Living Democracy, forthcoming from Teachers College Press.

Culturally Responsive Teaching: Strategies for the K-12 Classroom

Session 3
Jessy Molina and Toni Woodlon

This workshop will provide the space for educators to reflect on their own identities and how those identities show up in the classroom, impacting teaching and learning. Participants will gain valuable tools and strategies for curriculum development, classroom management, and family engagement with a culturally responsive lens. This conversation will be engaging, interactive, hands-on and fun!
