Teaching with an Equity Lens: Learning Partnerships in the Classroom National Equity Project

Workshop description:

This two-day session is focused on supporting teachers to develop purposeful, culturally responsive relationships between teacher and student. The Learning Partnership framework provides a “window” that enables teachers to better understand their students: multiple aspects of their identities, how they think, how they learn, and the self-perceptions and non-cognitive factors that affect their learning. This framework also offers a supportive “mirror” for the teacher: Who am I? What mindsets might consciously or unconsciously shape my teaching and interactions with students? What skills do I need to further develop as a teacher? Learning Partnerships enable the building of trust across differences of identity (race, gender, class, family background, life experience, etc.) and the leveraging of that trust in service of deeper ownership—and ultimately acceleration—of student learning.
