Equity as Excellence (SF)

The goal of this three-day professional development opportunity is to understand the research and pedagogical practices that support equitable, diverse, and excellent K-12 schools. We will focus on three areas for study and reflection:

  • Foundations of Diversity Pedagogy: multicultural education and the field’s development over time
  • Curricular Scope and Sequence: examples of inclusive classroom lessons and teaching strategies
  • Leadership Best Practices: support for administrators in leading a diverse community

Beginning with a thorough exploration of current research methods that support an inclusive teaching/learning environment, each day will include curriculum design along with leadership strategies that promote equity and sustain excellence. The Program Director for this workshop is Elizabeth Denevi, Director of Studies and Professional Development at the Latin School of Chicago. Guest presenters and organizations include: Dr. Howard Stevenson, Milton Reynolds, Randolph Carter, and Gender Spectrum
