How can teachers modify their practice to empower a diverse learning community and facilitate the academic achievement of students? Rooted in James A. Banks theory on Multiculturalism's Five Dimensions, this workshop focuses on disrupting ineffective and oppressive teaching practices. Using a design thinking approach, educators will have the opportunity to learn techniques and teaching methods that facilitate the academic achievement of students from diverse racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups. Participants will engage in an interactive workshop that deepens their understanding of how to apply an equity lens in their practice. This workshop provides an equity framework and introduces tangible ways for teachers to construct empowering learning communities.
