THE EVOLVING SIGNIFICANCE OF RACE IN TEACHING AND LEARNING
Tuesday, September 20, 6:30-8 pm
with UCCH Church Member Sherick Hughes Associate Professor,UNC-Chapel Hill School of Education
Our attempts to provide every child and adult learner with what they need–equity–to make the most of their educational experiences– excellence–are still consciously and unconsciously thwarted by the ingrained notion of race and systemic, structural racism in our society. Evidence of this point can be supported by exploring reputable, historical and contemporary data at the intersection of race, poverty, teaching and learning in the U.S.
The talk invites audience members to begin developing a more critical, reflexive approach to this historical and contemporary data by applying dominant ideology, political economy, schooling, and game status in tandem as one dynamic analytic framework for understanding the evolving significance of race in their own living, learning and teaching.
