Join fellow educators in learning how to incorporate the rich diversity of student voices and identity into your curriculum and pedagogical practice. Our students each come to school filled with life experiences, individual perspectives and powerful voices. And adolescence can be a time when students wrestle with questions of identity, community, and belonging. This full-day event will offer practical classroom and school applications that will further enhance your efforts at creating inclusive and student-centered learning environments.
The day will allow participants to choose workshops addressing questions of student identity and experience, themes of immigration and migration, and connecting humanities curriculum to students’ lives.
Join us at NYU for morning and afternoon workshops, lunch, a keynote presentation and an opportunity to connect with NYC educators. Workshops will feature Facing History and Ourselves resources including My Part of the Story and the Witness to History memoir series. Hosted in partnership with NYU Steinhardt and Hunter College School of Education.
This event is intended for middle school and high school educators.
