Engaged Educator Coalition
This hub provides resources for professional learning, reflection, and collaboration so that educators have regular opportunities to engage in the following:
- build their knowledge of and reflect on the history of race, racism, and exclusion in the United States and build their skill for discussing this history with students in the context of lessons and class discussions
- increase their own self-awareness of how their various social identities in terms of race, class, gender, language, etc. shaped their own educational experiences and shape their definitions of success and their interpretations of student behavior
- deconstruct, reflect on, and design lessons that support the active valuing, engagement, and development of the whole child
- learn about the neuroscience of learning; those signals that trigger a “threat” response especially for students of color as well as strategies explicitly designed to decrease stress and generate a sense of calm and well-being
- develop a repertoire of approaches for building trust, especially across race, class, and culture.
