602: Finding Our Voices and Helping Others Find Theirs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will share one educator’s journey to find her voice and advocate for our EL/immigrant student and their families. Discover what’s at stake when we use a deficit model and become inspired by her story to frame instruction through the lens of an assets based approach. Learn how this can help transform the stories students write for themselves by revising the narrative of our classrooms. We discover that equity is a lens, not a curriculum, and it becomes the foundation to every practice in our classroom, providing students an opportunity to find their voice, identity, and agency. We will explore and share strategies that can help infuse this into every level of our practice, from academic to social-emotional. Explore and discuss strategies that can help ensure your students feel seen, heard, their voices lifted, and their stories shared.
