PD 6686 – A Deeper Look into Equity-Based Belonging in Schools: Pro Tips from Teachers

January 11 | 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Creating equitable education systems involves bringing teachers, mentors, coaches, administrators, and staff into a full appreciation of the fundamental importance of belonging. How will you make sure your students feel accepted, respected, included, and supported? Tiffany Scott (Secondary School Assistant Principal) John Guffey (Elementary School Principal-in-Training), and other equity-focused educators outline key considerations for audiences seeking to lock into the belonging headspace and provide specific ways that schools can address the belonging vulnerability of Black students and other minoritized student populations. Watch and listen to these unscripted conversations as educators speak from the heart and share their personalized perspectives on the psychology of belonging in schools.
Students will watch a 30-minute set of videos on the topic of belonging. These discussions are from practicing teachers and administrators with a track record of supporting students from historically marginalized backgrounds. They will watch these videos on their own time. Then, we will come together for a rich discussion on lessons learned and key takeaways.
An information session will be held for students who are interested this semester (Fall 2021).
