P187-7480.1F18 - Promoting Academic Achievement Among African American and Latino American Boys and Girls through Research Based Strategies

Course Details
Course Description:

This class equips teachers with practical, in classroom methodologies that have shown to advance the academic performance of students of color. Based on the work of researchers such as Claude Steele, Tyrone Howard, Pedro Noguera, Gloria Ladson-Billings, Johnnie McKinely, Gary Howard, Baruti Kafele, Geneva Gay and Gilda Ochoa this class takes a constructivist and research based approach toward helping educators recognize and combat the negative affect of implicit stereotype thinking and master skills needed to remove barriers to K-12 student learning. Teachers will learn how to foster respect and rapport in the classroom through building counter narratives to inferiority complexes that students may harbor. Course participants will see examples of teachers and schools that are closing the achievement gap through in-classroom practices that work. Although the course focuses much of the material on African and Latino American students, it is structured to provide conceptual frameworks and practices that work across cultures, and, when practiced, build a classroom culture conducive to learning for all students.
