A Teacher Like Me: pushing past racial archetypes

Jas Thomas and Rosalind Echols
Session Six
Room 307

Do students need a teacher who "looks like" them, and is from a similar background? How can we create meaningful relationships with students in spite of our own preconceived expectations and stereotypes? How can educators design curriculum that pushes beyond student labels? This conversation will explore multiculturalism in the classroom, and its implications for learning.
