BELOVED COMMUNITY: Racial Equity & Justice in the Classroom

Course No. ED475y, ED575y

Beloved Community is formed not by the eradication of difference but by its affirmation, by each of us claiming the identities and cultural legacies that shape who we are and how we live in the world.”

Have you heard about or had training in Culturally Responsive pedagogy and/or Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives and are wondering about the next steps? Are you committed to this work and looking for ways to integrate this into your classroom or school? Do you need help figuring out where to start or what to do next? You are not alone.

Social Justice movements and the pandemic have pushed many educators (and school districts) to reflect and invest in ideas that work to close the inequitable opportunity and achievement gaps for all of our students. We will use Dr. Sharroky Hollie’s book, Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Teaching and Learning to guide our thinking and learning and establish a clear trajectory toward leading for justice, equity, and liberation in our classrooms.
