Study Series Session 1: Equity Literacy for Transformation


Culturally Relevant Literacy Pedagogy

Val Brown, professional developer with Teaching Tolerance and creator of #ClearTheAir, and Dr. Dana Stachowiak, TheEdCollab Network Member and contributing author to Culturally Affirming Literacy Practices for Urban Elementary Students, lead this session which will encourage and equip K-12 educators to engage in critical reflection about their pedagogy and develop inclusive, responsive, anti-biased literacy practices. This session will move beyond social justice 101 and help K-12 literacy educators plan pedagogy and curriculum critically. If you have asked questions like: “How do we plan literacy instruction that supports and celebrates all learners?” or “I have been focusing on reading ‘diverse books’, what can I do next?” or have been looking for ways to develop more culturally relevant and sustaining literacy teaching, you will leave full of inspiration, critical reflection, and practical ideas. With considerations for literacy educators, coaches, and leaders, the session will help you support students—and colleagues—in critically conscious planning, teaching, and learning.

Standards-aligned: CCSS R1-10, W1-10; Danielson: 1, 2a-b, 3, 4a, d-e; Teaching Tolerance: Identity, Diversity, Justice, Action

Each session is linked to professional and learning standards. As every district is different, crosswalk these between your own standards for alignment or contact us with questions.
