The Michigan Council of Teachers of English is pleased to present the 2020 Fall Webinar Series. The series will provide K-16 educators with tools to critically evaluate their beliefs, values, and practices and resources to design and enact antiracist pedagogies.
MCTE invites you to join a facilitated Q&A session with Dr. Carla Shalaby (University of Michigan - Ann Arbor) for the second event, "This is Soul Work: Teaching for Democracy" on Sunday, November 22, 2020 at 1 p.m. EST.
As the author of Troublemakers: Lessons in Freedom from Young Children at School, Dr. Shalaby’s work challenges us to consider how we might model and teach for democracy as a fundamental part of our purpose as educators. She calls upon teachers to rethink school discipline and classroom management, contend with the relationship between teaching and the movement to abolish police and prisons, and reframe how we see “troublemakers” in our classrooms.
We invite you to contribute questions you would like to pose Dr. Shalaby as a part of the registration below.
Note: All MCTE webinars are free and open to the public.
