CWI: The Next Institute on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: From Classroom to Community, Moving Toward Social Justice
Join us as we dig deep into the realities of educating for social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion in ways that will inform your teaching practice, your relationship to students, and your choice of curriculum and projects. Our work together will include looking at the importance of personal stories, along with the power of “dominant narratives.” and how students can be a part of changing those narratives.
The NEXT Institute combines theory with practical application around issues of racial, economic, and gender justice. How do we bring culturally relevant pedagogy and curricula to the classroom or program in a way that resonates with learners from all backgrounds, including non-neurotypical learners? How as educators can we be agents of change that challenge the status quo/systemic oppression not only in our classrooms and programs but also at our institutions? How can we combine ethnography, social justice, and social-emotional learning in our lessons and units, and better yet, into the culture of our schools and organizations? By walking through scenarios, group activities, not best but NEXT practices, and going beyond the buzzwords of our time, this Institute will equip you with concrete tools to help transform your classroom, program, and institution.
