#ECC16 Workshop Materials: Embracing and Cultivating Diverse Voices in the Classroom: What Allies Can Do

Embracing and Cultivating Diverse Voices in the Classroom: What Allies Can Do
Beth Herman-Davis, Mind the Gaps, Jake Sugerman
Teachers must change their practices to meet the needs of diverse students who experience a reality that is different from that of the culture, language, and beliefs of their instructor, school, and mainstream society. Through the presentation, participants will gain valuable insight in the ways that critical pedagogy and the inclusion of student voice can guide curriculum planning.  Additionally, participants will briefly dialogue about teaching (and learning) from diverse students, engage in individual and small-group activities, which highlight critical pedagogy and culturally responsive teaching, and reaffirm the value of repositioning themselves as learners in the classroom to elevate students’ voices.
