Teaching and Learning for Equity in Elementary Literacy Classrooms
Presented by: Usha James
Located at: Online
About the Session

Target Audience:  K-4 Elementary teachers and Librarians

How do I take an equity approach with very young children? I care deeply about developing a more inclusive classroom but how do I make sure I don’t inadvertently cause more harm? How can I help my students explore their own identities and expose them to experiences and stories that will broaden their worldview? In this series, we will:

  • engage as a community of thinkers to explore these questions and more
  • think critically and collaboratively about our own experiences and identities and how they inform our teaching decisions
  • examine practical approaches and strategies to decenter white narratives in elementary literacy learning in thoughtful ways that foster a sense of inclusion and belonging.
