P257-11174.1F21 - Foundations of CR-SE

Course Details
Course Description: Every day, teachers make thousands of decisions: what content to teach, what activities to assign, who to call on, how to respond to a student question, how to react to student behavior. These decisions are all impacted by the teacher’s beliefs and worldviews, specifically how the teacher understands culture. In this course, we will develop the self-awareness and foundational knowledge required to identify our teaching ideology, develop a bias towards teaching and learning that center justice and equity, and learn new teaching practices that recognize, value, and sustain the brilliance of every young person. With colleagues from across the NYCDOE, you will participate in four asynchronous modules of inquiry, practice, and action, and then complete a final action project. In each module, we will engage with critically conscious and culturally sustaining research, reflect and analyze our current beliefs and practices against CR-SE practice, and rehearse taking action through community scenario practice. You will develop a rich set of resources and exercises you can use with your students and colleagues in your school context. Participants in this course should be willing to engage with material about race, gender, ability, and other potentially sensitive topics. This course is an opportunity for making meaning of critical resources, theories, and perspectives to inform our beliefs and approaches as educators. This course is not designed to impart a set of strategies, lesson plans, or “how-to” guides because true CR-SE work is adaptive and necessarily unique to individual contexts.
