In this Webinar

Dr. Kimberly Parker will help you check in on your ELA classroom communities and your culturally relevant practices. Drawing from her book Literacy Is Liberation: Working Toward Justice Through Culturally Relevant Teaching, Parker will focus specifically on helping you evaluate how your current literacy practice is going, especially when it comes to
implementing diverse literature with BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) students.

Literacy Is Liberation: Working Toward Justice Through Culturally Relevant Teaching

Literacy is the foundation for all learning and must be accessible to all students. This fundamental truth is where Kimberly Parker begins to explore how culturally relevant teaching can help students work toward justice. Her goal is to make the literacy classroom a place where students can safely talk about key issues, move to dismantle inequities, and collaborate with one another. Introducing diverse texts is an essential part of the journey, but teachers must also be equipped with culturally relevant pedagogy to improve literacy instruction for all.
