Veteran educator and author, Jason Ablin, brings critical approaches and tools to principals, teacher supervisors, mentors and coaches that will empower them to bring gender equity and fairness to their schools. School leaders, who must be the supportive eyes and ears for new or veteran teachers, will learn how to help shape the gender lenses of faculty regarding planning and practices so that all students can feel safe and successful. Gender is a powerful signifier for students regarding how they should perceive themselves as learners. Tried and true observational tools and data collection practices will be introduced that can transform teacher approaches, raising student engagement across subject matter. Classroom design and inquiry protocols will also be discussed which reduce gender bias and allow students to understand that all parts of the curriculum are accessible to them. Participants will also train in question analysis, based on adult learning theory that allows teachers to see the relevance of this approach with the ultimate goal of student growth and learning confidence.
Agenda (Sessions run 2 hours):
Session I
Coaches and supervisors learn how to bring the compelling reasoning and language of gender equity to their mentees and teachers. Through thoughtful practices of self reflection, content analysis, and framing, we help teachers see the “why” of sharpening our teacher lenses around issues of implicit bias. What are the consequences if we do not do this work? What are the benefits to students and faculty when they seek improvement in this critical area of human development and identity? Four critical framing conversations will be provided to participants to galvanize teachers regarding this work.
Who should take this workshop:
K-12 instructional leadership, including department chairs, mentor teachers, assistant principals, principals and district leaders in charge of instructional improvement and supervision.
