While practical strategies exist, the problem with race-conscious pedagogy is often ideological. This presentation with Todd Mealy will help participants: 1) discuss strategies to convince those that contest race-conscious learning, 2) share approaches to write inclusive curricula, 3) explain how race-conscious classrooms should function. The practical application that participants will learn can be embedded into the curriculum by being taught with a critical race lens underpinning this presentation.

The Pennsylvania School Study Council at Penn State University College of Education and Central Intermediate Unit 10 are offering a unique learning opportunity for the 2021-2022 school year. Each district is invited to select a group of educators who will lead social and emotional learning (SEL) implementation efforts in their school and/or district. Participants in this course will spend the year as part of a multi-district cohort learning about the fundamentals of systemic and sustainable social and emotional learning, building adult SEL capacity and making the connection between SEL and school climate. Each session in this series will build on the work done in previous sessions and all will be delivered through an equity lens that emphasizes trauma-sensitive and restorative practices. By the end of this course, attendees will leave with a solid and evidence-based implementation plan to guide roll-out efforts throughout the district.

Act 45 (50 hours per participant) and Act 48 approved (36 hours per participant)

We will also cover recruiting rules and guidelines so high school administrators and coaches can assist students in this process. The last part of the segment will highlight upcoming changes to NCAA rules and how this will affect incoming students.
