Join Innovate ‘21: Blended Learning in Adult Education for a special presentation on bringing social justice into blended learning Language Arts classes!
Presenter: Kimberly Taylor (Truman College)
During this session, attendees will learn innovative ways to connect students to real-world topics, including Civil Rights Movements, social justice, and diversity, equity, and inclusion, in the blended learning environment.
As part of the presentation, Kimberly Taylor will present her Social Justice and Black Lives Matter (BLM) Instructional Resources Collection, which highlights work from trailblazers in African-American studies and Black-thought leaders who have emphasized and revealed damaging, mistaken realities about African-American contributions in America. Additionally, Taylor will discuss systemic educational racism and ways educators can enhance learners’ intercultural competencies.
With instructional links, historical videos, documentaries, and a glossary of racial equity terms, these lessons can help attendees communicate better about racism, empowering your classroom to create a space of inclusion for people of color, with robust topics for group projects, writing, and asynchronous discussion prompts.
