On Saturday, February 6, 2021 we will host the 3rd Annual Powerful Learners Conference as a virtual event, focused on how we can reenergize, reconnect and refresh as educators to keep students feeling safe and supported in this most unusual time. Together, we will build capacity in our schools and community spaces for honoring the unique needs and gifts of our students, setting the stage for them to thrive and break cycles of structural inequity.

Committed to Learning: An Ethnic Studies Curriculum and Instruction PLC

One of several anti-racist initiatives at Gateway High School, the Ethnic Studies Curriculum and Instruction group formed to  reflect and grow as Ethnic Studies teachers and anti racist educators. This session shares the work of this group of educators “committed to deepening their critical consciousness”  through a research based teacher led inquiry.
The session will begin with a welcome and connector related to the topic. Next will be context as to why and how the group was formed, research we engaged in as to the impact and importance of this work and lastly an overview of the teacher-led inquiry we engaged in. I plan to use tech tools like nearpod, jamboard, polls and others.
