College of Education Symposium - Teaching in Contentious Times: Strategies for Successful Practice
||9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
||Join the UNM College of Education Departments of Language, Literacy, and Sociocultural Studies (LLSS) and Teacher Education, Educational Leadership, and Policy (TEELP), alongside the LAII, for a timely half-day conference for pre-service teachers. Teaching in the current political and social context poses a unique set of challenges- especially to new teachers who find themselves facing both obstacles and opportunities. Join us in a series of interactive workshops as we consider how to address the following issues in productive and meaningful ways: stress and poverty, gender and sexual identity, creative expression during oppressive times, meeting the needs of a diverse student body, high-stakes testing and accountability, popular culture, refugee students, families and communities, and more! This conference will offer in-depth discussions and practical classroom tools.
