Seeing Our Native Students: Choosing to Make the Invisible, Visible
*Note* This session is appropriate for educators of all levels!
Join Redbud Resource Group as we explore fresh ways to integrate Indigenous and Native culture into the classroom. Participants will leave with a deepened understanding of the ecosocial context in which modern Native peoples live and an awareness of the harmful stereotypes that often pop up in our classrooms. Actionable anti-racist strategies for creating a more equitable and supportive classroom, one that celebrates and uplifts Indigenous knowledge in all subjects, will be provided to all attendees. 
Key Takeaways:
  1. Misrepresentation and erasure of Native and Indigenous peoples in the classroom negatively impacts Native students. Educators can support their Native and Indigenous students by gaining an understanding of the political, historical, cultural, and environmental context of Native America.

  2. Integrating Native knowledge into all school subjects increases the self-worth of Native and Indigenous youth, and may increase allyship between Native and non-Native students. Despite colonialism, Native and Indigenous people continue to protect their cultural and scientific knowledge.

Connection, Curiosity and Collaboration Through the Practice of Public Learning
In this session, Lead by Learning, a non-profit organization with the Mills School of Education that supports educator and leader learning in schools, will introduce one of our key practices: Public Learning. Public Learning is a practice that shifts the way educators learn together by centering the conversation not on “what I have done” but “what I am uncertain about....” The practice of Public Learning is about making meaning together alongside colleagues. This looks like a colleague sharing an honest dilemma they are grappling with and listeners not only reflecting on what they heard but supporting the learner to move forward in their thinking through questions and wonderings. This equity strategy is about centering what is best for students, specifically the students right in front of us at that moment in rich conversation with colleagues.

Audience members will be invited to learn about the practice through active participation by engaging in a Public Learning conversation themselves using our supported protocol. It is our goal that attendees leave the session reenergized to bring this form of collaboration and learning back to their sites and collaborative spaces. Additionally, participants will receive a downloadable chapter from our playbook which supports bringing Public Learning to their contexts.

Journey Towards Coaching for Equity
How might instructional coaching interrupt educational inequities and create a learning culture where every student thrives? We describe equity broadly and through the lens of inclusion where every student receives what they need to develop their full academic potential and achieve academic success. Coaching begins with understanding our own biases and beliefs and ultimately shows up in strong coaching relationships that support the development of teachers' understanding of their own identity markers, implicit biases and privileges, and how these play out in the classroom and impact students. We will draw upon the work of Elena Aguilar's Transformational Coaching framework and focus on 2-3 high leverage coaching practices. The journey begins with ourselves and continues as we refine our coaching conversations and skills. Through sharing of experiences, role play and dialogue participants will explore a coaching for equity framework, strategies for building relational trust and key tools for initiating conversations around equity. Throughout presenters will model strategies that support coaching for equity.
Participants will be able to:
Map a personal journey towards coaching for equity.
Understand the why of coaching for equity.
Expand their skill set for keeping equity at the center of coaching.
Connect and strategize with others.

Using Narrative to Build SEL Skills in Your Classroom
Unfortunately, there is no available recording for this session.

This session is designed for educators of all subject areas who are interested in infusing their curriculum with narrative as a means of building and reinforcing empathy and agency. In this session, participants will learn about the power of narrative to connect students to each other, the content, and their communities. In the first half of the presentation the presenters will share their experiences using narrative texts. In the second half of the presentation, participants will move to breakout rooms to share their ideas, experiences, and strategies for implementing narrative text and addressing potential challenges with narrative texts. Participants will leave the session with access to discussion protocols, question frames, and a shared understanding of empathy and agency.

Though this session is designed with the developing teacher in mind, any teacher who would like to explore incorporating narratives into their curriculum as a way to facilitate the development of SEL skills in their students is welcome.

This will be a hands-on, interactive workshop. Laptops are recommended for full participation.

Understanding and Mitigating Bias
What is implicit bias? How does implicit bias shape the learning environment? Implicit biases are attitudes or stereotypes that are activated unconsciously and involuntarily. Social scientists believe that implicit biases are learned as young as age 3 and are influenced by stereotypes perpetrated by the media, or beliefs transmitted by families, peers, and other community members. In this interactive workshop, participants will explore the scholarship and practices necessary to identify, respond to and mitigate the effects of bias on students, educators, and families. This content is appropriate for educators at all experience levels and teaching contexts.

Objectives:
1. Understand the ways in which implicit bias operates and shapes how historically marginalized students are viewed.
2. Learn how to mitigate implicit bias in the classroom.

Breadth and Depth for College Access - A Holistic, Student-Centered, and Relationship-Driven Approach to College Counseling
Gateway High School succeeds in supporting 95% of its graduating students annually in matriculating to higher education.  This rate is a result of a unique and intensive approach to college access where all students are required to take two semesters of a College Counseling course - first in the spring of their 11th grade and then again in the fall of their 12th grade.  In this session, Director of College Counseling Joel Rangel and his colleague Jenna Marx will highlight the philosophy, values, approaches and activities that inform our College Counseling curriculum, with the goal of providing tools that educators can use and adapt to their own environments and programming.

Student Choice and Voice in Anti-Racist Teaching
In this session, we will investigate why student choice and voice are essential to anti-racist teaching and learning. After setting up the importance of this framework, we will go through a Design Thinking Process and examine how this framework can be used in high school and middle school classrooms to empower students. Participants will engage in the Design Thinking Process and strategize how to do this with their own students. The session will model how to approach this with students and in this way accommodate diverse learning styles and experience levels for adults, just as educators will have to do in turn with their own students.

Objectives:
Participants will gain an understanding of frameworks to interrogate power dynamics in the classroom to enact anti-racist teaching practices;
Participants will leave with concrete examples and strategies for implementing these principles in their own classrooms.

Culturally Authentic Read Alouds and Literature Circles
It is a misconception that read alouds are for primary school children only. In fact, this simple
practice is a great equalizer for all learners across all grade levels. Reading aloud targets the
skills of auditory learners, establishes a basis for discourse, and motivates students to read
independently. Through read alouds, students learn how to use language to make sense of the
world, improve their information processing skills, are exposed to new vocabulary, and are
guided through comprehension.

More specifically, when read alouds consist of culturally authentic literature, benefits are seen
both academically and personally. Through this genre, students find relatable themes; and
because they are happening to the character, students become more comfortable discussing
issues as they arise. Reading aloud culturally authentic literature promotes self-awareness,
diversity, inclusivity, and a sense of belonging. Students lived experiences are not only seen and
heard through this genre, they are also invited into the classroom space.

As we read this genre aloud to students, they are encouraged to share their connections, listen
to other perspectives, and engage in discourse that deepens their understanding of themselves
and the world. And soon, by establishing a foundation of discourse and community through
read louds, moving into literatures circles with similar expectations and guidelines becomes a
breeze.

Overview of Agenda –
- Listen to a culturally authentic read aloud
- Participate in an ice breaker activity connected to the read aloud
- Discuss themes of the read aloud text
- Define Culturally Authentic Literature
- Learn about and review benefits of read clouds for all ages
- Review literature Circles
- Explore a list of culturally authentic read alouds and chapter books for literature circles

Participants will:
- Listen to a culturally authentic text and participate in discourse with the purpose of
defining and understanding this genre
- Review the benefits of reading aloud to all students in all grades and establish a need
for this practice
- Be exposed to a list of culturally authentic texts for read alouds and literature circles

Teaching for Civic Agency
The events of 2020 make it clear that our work as civic educators is now more urgent than ever to empower our youth with the ability to make positive change. Legal scholar Martha Minow has observed that one of the biggest barriers that individuals face in getting involved is that it is hard to know what actual steps to take: “Often times, we see something that’s unjust and we wonder, ‘Where do I go? What do I do?”  

What are the knowledge, skills and dispositions that young people need to create a more just, inclusive and equitable world? We will learn about Facing History’s five essential practices for effective civic agency and participate in teaching activities that engage students in lessons about power, the universe of obligation and the common good. We will explore the concept of transitional justice as a tool to help individuals identify problems and the various ways to take concrete action.

Objectives: 
1. Learn a new way of structuring curriculum to help students connect history to their own lives and the choices they make today.
2. Analyze historical and contemporary case studies of youth-led activism.
