Salt Lake City, UT (Vocus) October 6, 2010
Beginning October 4, 2010 in conjunction with School Improvement Network, Glenn Singleton expounds upon his two-day seminar to give teachers, students, parent/guardians, and administrators a more in-depth understanding of the impact of race on student learning in a more extensive 4-week course.
Beyond Diversity: A Foundation for Deinstitutionalizing Racism and Eliminating Systemic Racial Disparities offers participants the opportunity to engage in a thoughtful, compassionate exploration of race and racism and grapple with how each influence the culture and climate of schools. With its rich diversity content, this course is infiltrated with effective tools for school district employees striving to continue in their equity efforts. It is also a great option for individuals who may be interested in pursuing the curriculum independently, as well as a professional development tool as teachers prepare to renew their licensure.
Participants of Glenn Singleton’s course will walk away with the ability to define race and racism and the knowledge of how each, through school policies, programs and practices negatively impacts low-performing student populations. They will learn how to engage, sustain, and deepen Courageous Conversation, discover ways to stop perpetual racism through daily instructional practices and curricular choices, and develop a personal plan for deepening their understanding of racism.
Accompanied with every license, each participant will receive unlimited access to PD 360, the world’s largest community of over 700,000 educators. Participants of the Beyond Diversity course will also have the option to receive 3 graduate credits through Hamline University Center for Excellence in Urban Teaching.
