Training Overview

How does your school foster equity in learning? Decolonize your curriculum this school year.

As the new school year begins, families continue to want students to study topics and perspectives representative of their backgrounds. People learn more when they identify with the subject matter, and traditional reading instruction may not provide the equity parents and students expect.

Now is the time to decolonize reading instruction to engage historically underserved students and foster literacy. More than just throwing another book or two onto reading lists, you must actively examine your entire program to ensure equitable representation in content, instructional methods, and participation.

  • How can you deepen the cultural competence of your school community?
  • What is the history of literacy instruction and schooling in the U.S.?
  • How do privileges, power, and oppression sustain inequity?
  • How can you teach your students to develop a love of literacy?
