Jul 12, 2021

WHO: Classroom teachers from IPS, and districts/charters throughout Indy

DATES: July 12 and 19, 2021

Do you want to chart a course to becoming a multicultural organization that is inclusive, affirming, and committed to transformation?  Facilitated by seasoned educational leaders and national experts in organizational transformation and student achievement REthinc will provide a 2-day cohort experience for Teachers who are leading the equity work in the schools of Indiana.

  • 2-day introductory virtual (zoom) course through which participants are exposed to the relationship between the history of inequitable ideas in America, racial inequity for American students, high standards, high-quality instruction, and the role of selected aligned curricular content in providing equitable instruction to students.

  • Participants will

    • Ground themselves in MLK’s perspective and conclusions regarding systemic racism.

    • Understand the current state of their local educational context.

    • Reflect on their personal leadership and the ways in which it impacts their respective workplace and education more broadly.

    • Make a personal commitment to anti-racism within their role moving forward.

  • Participants will complete pre-work prior to the initial session. They will learn to rely on and be creative and autonomous within high-quality instructional materials, scaffold students who aren’t ready for the grade in which they find themselves, and examine their own bias regarding expectations for Black, Latinx, and bilingual students.
