P187-12510.1S24 - Equity Matters: Closing Gaps in Education and Achievement

Course Details
Course Description: Are you passionate about equity? Do you believe that every student deserves a fair chance for success in education and in life? Do you believe that teachers can play a role in promoting equity through definite shifts in perspective and practices? Then this course is for you! As educators, we all are keenly aware that there exist impermissible gaps in educational opportunities, achievement, and outcomes among students, based on linguistic backgrounds, socio-economic levels, gender, race, and other factors. In this course, these gaps, along with the causes and consequences of these gaps, are presented for clear recognition and reversal, through ways proven to effectively close these gaps, backed by extensive research findings from a wide range of practitioners. The course ends with a counter-example to the discussion of gaps, as well as examples of success in closing the discussed gaps. Participants will come away from this course with a renewed conviction as well as an enriched repertoire of strategies that will increase equity in and through education. Material supports online, blended, and traditional classroom settings.
