Where:
York University
4700 Keele Street

with Dr. Paul Gorski (Founder of the Equity Literacy Institute and edchange.org)

Building on topics covered in the previous workshop, Dr. Paul Gorski and participants will explore strategies for engaging educators in deep and justice-oriented learning about poverty, education, and economic justice. Whether you want to facilitate formal workshops, more effectively engage colleagues in informal conversations about these issues, or incorporate deeper learning about these issues into your teaching, this workshop will help you develop a framework and strategies

for doing so effectively. How do we bridge somebody from a deficit view to a more structural or equity view? How might we sequence a learning experience to move people toward deeper awareness? How do we sustain the integrity of our approach in the face of resistance? We will explore these and other questions as we prepare to deepen our own and others’ commitments to educational justice.

Cost: $300 (plus HST)

This event will be limited to 35 participants.
