Episode 3: Zachary Wright
The beliefs, practices, and policies common in the United States school system are cultivating inequities in classrooms across the country. Activist, professor, and author Zachary Wright has thoughts about how to recognize, repudiate, and reverse these inequities. He shares these insights as we discuss his book "Dismantling a Broken System: Actions to Bridge the Opportunity, Equity, and Justice Gap in American Education."
Episode 2: Jarvis R. Givens
For too long, receiving an education in the United States has been a dangerous and revolutionary act for African Americans. Becoming authentically literate in the written word, history, math and the sciences was a literal and psychological escape to freedom. Exploring who led these efforts, how they led these efforts, and what we can apply from them today is important and undervalued work that can change how we do education. This is the work of author Jarvis Givens who joins me to discuss his book, “Fugitive Pedagogy, Carter G. Woodson and the Art of BlackTeaching."
Episode 1: Lorena Escoto Germán
What happens when classroom instruction is focused on building academic skills, while at the same time, teaching social justice? What's to gain when students are exposed to teaching that is student-driven and community-centered, but is also flexible, connected to other subjects, and deeply interactive? That's the work of author Lorena Escoto Germán who joins this episode to discuss her book Texture Teaching: A Framework for Culturally Sustaining Practices.
