Radical Teaching: Reading Workshop as a Powerful Space for Transformation and Liberation

In this workshop I propose four pillars for radical teaching. Educators will be invited to consider how these pillars can lead to transformative and liberatory educational experiences for Black and Brown students and how they can apply them as teachers of reading.

90 Min Workshop - June 15 at 9:00 AM ET

From Representation to Liberation: Culturally Relevant and Sustaining, Antiracist Book Clubs

Students’ ability to access books that serve as mirrors and windows has been a critical conversation in education. During this presentation, participants will gain greater clarity around moving beyond representation. They’ll be provided with a toolkit for teaching reading in ways that affirm the racial and cultural identities of students and help them develop their awareness of inequities and ways to disrupt them.
