Realizing the Ethical Commitment to Students through Civil Rights in Creating Equitable Classrooms
This session will focus on educators’ responsibilities in creating safe spaces for students in making a conscious commitment to educational equity through the application of civil rights legislation. Participants will gain a greater understanding of what educational equity truly means and how federal civil rights legislation can be a vehicle in moving forward in providing equal access and opportunities for students regardless of race, gender, national origin, and ability/disability. One way educational equity can be advanced in classrooms is to understand the research on how inequities play out in classrooms. GESA (Generating Expectations for Student Achievement) is based on research of the inequities that are a part of our classroom both consciously and subconsciously. One of the ways teachers can begin to disrupt bias messages delivered through the curriculum is to learn how to review materials for bias. This session will focus on what teachers can do in reviewing curriculum materials for bias and moving towards a multicultural curriculum. In understanding how something as simple as: a student of color, a girl or boy, and student who may not speak the dominate language, or someone who has a disability not seeing themselves portrayed in the curriculum.
Presenter: Dr. Jan Perry Evenstad
