This workshop will engage educators in supporting students’ critical thinking skills and using intentional counternarratives to challenge students to unlearn or relearn what they thought they knew. We will explore popular images (social media, ads) and stories (Cinderella, Little Red Hen) as opportunities to engage students in dismantling stereotypes and in reframing those narratives toward justice.

In this series of conversations we'll explore what it means to develop systems that truly center justice and equity for each student and the communities served by our education systems.

Principle in this endeavor is authentic engagement with students and families, shared vision and collective action, and high quality teaching and learning for students and educators. As part of our ongoing work to reimagine and realize more just school systems, we invite school leaders, community partners, and anyone interested in joining us in these collective endeavors.
