Courageous Conversation: BEYOND DIVERSITY/Colchester @ Hampton Inn Conference Center | Colchester | Vermont | United States

Facilitator: Leidene King, Pacific Educational Group

Beyond Diversity is a powerful, personally transforming two-day seminar that helps teachers, students, and administrators understand the impact of race on our lives, our work and our learning. Interactive and stirring exercises strength participants’ critical consciousness of race and leads them to investigate the role that racism plays in institutionalizing achievement disparities. Most importantly, it models and teaches a protocol for discussing race in ways that are productive, insightful, and generative. We cannot solve the problems created by systemic racism without discussing race, and Beyond Diversity, a program with a 25-year history and over 100,000 alumni, imparts a method for having Courageous Conversations.

Disrupting Poverty: Turning High-Poverty Schools into High-Performing Schools @ Hampton Inn Conference Center
Apr 13 – Apr 14 all-day

Facilitator: Kathleen M. Budge Co-author and Associate Professor at Boise State University

Dates: April 13 & 14, 2021 Time: Time: 8:30 registration  9:00 – 3:30 

Includes breakfast and lunch and 2 books:

New edition: Turning High-Poverty Schools into High-Performing Schools (William H Parrett and Kathleen M Budge) 2020 ASCD and Disrupting Poverty: Five Powerful  Classroom Practices (William H Parrett & Kathleen M Budge) 2018 ASCD          

Target Audience: K-12 Educators and Equity Leaders

We know the transformative power of educators, particularly teachers, to improve the life chances of children and youth who live in poverty. What sets these educators apart from others is not only attending to what and how they teach, but also to who they are (what they believe and value) and why they became educators in the first place.

In this 2-day institute, Dr. Budge will share practical advice from her best-selling ASCD books: Disrupting Poverty: Five Powerful Classroom Practices and her latest book (included with this institute) Turning High-Poverty Schools into High-Performing Schools. Participants will learn:
⦁ The five practices that foster a supportive classroom culture and build resilience
⦁ New data and insights into strategies for developing collective efficacy that support high poverty schools
⦁ Integrating social-emotional learning into schoolwide processes and classroom practices
⦁ Supporting children who have experienced trauma.

They will leave equipped with tools and a road map for disrupting poverty’s adverse influence not only on academic learning, but on social and emotional learning as well.
