TEACHING FOR CIVIC EMPOWERMENT IN THE ELEMENTARY YEARS

Date: May 4, 2021
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am
Location: Virtual Webinar

Dr. Stephanie Serriere will offer five pillars for the “civically-minded” elementary teacher to promote civic empowerment in the elementary years. Her workshop will illuminate these pillars with research-backed practices for promoting and integrating civic education in a classroom ethos and curriculum. Some practices she will share include using “photo-talks” to explore classroom issues, civic action projects, student-created magazines (called civic ‘zines) on student chosen issues, and applications of the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) framework for elementary level. Guided by key questions for practice, teachers will have time to network and share ideas.
Intended Audience: All elementary-level educators and administrators; special focus on Social Studies Education
Instructor: Stephanie C. Serriere, Ph.D. | Professor | Division of Education | Indiana University – Purdue University Columbus (IUPUC)

Critical Examination of Race Narratives in Children’s Literature

Date: February 16, 2021
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am
Location: Virtual
BHM-Webinar-Series-Tweet-Art-1024×576

Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2021, from 6 to 7:15 p.m. EST

As educators continue enacting more culturally responsive pedagogies, multicultural children’s literature has flooded the educational marketplace and rapidly made its way into classrooms. Despite good intentions, however, not all literature that is marketed as multicultural is high-quality and asset-oriented. In fact, some texts portray strong implicit biases, stereotypes and oppressive narratives. In this workshop, you will be introduced to a critical analysis tool for examining multicultural literature and practice conducting critical examinations of various children’s books.
