Antiracist Project Based Learning Workshop – April 17th, 24th, 2021

Attend this workshop if you are looking to explore the intersection of antiracism and deeper learning.

 

Description:

We know that changes are necessary in school and we must address systemic racism. But what does that look like in the classroom, in curriculum, and every day teaching. Folks who attend my foundational trainings often wonder what does antiracist teaching look like. What does it truly mean to center students of color and focus the learning of all students on social justice?

Through my teaching experience in schools dedicated to PBL, I often wondered where the social justice was at. I tried to find my own way and developed frameworks and tools that I hope to share with you. Later, as a Principal I was interested in how to align a school staff to leverage PBL with a focus on justice. I made some serious mistakes along the way and learned lots. This workshop is the product of that work.

I hope to create a space to learn, share, and actually plan. There will be opportunities to get feedback from other participants, and push us to deeper levels of instructional design. Ultimately, I want to connect people who are looking to bring back good teaching, and ensure that we are just doing PBL to make better robots. I want students to use PBL as a vehicle for engagement and social change. I hope you join us.
