Program: Southern Tier Teacher Center Network

Audience: Teachers, Administrators, School Related Professionals

Dates: 10/20/2021 to 11/17/2021

New
This study will review a model that encourages educators to provide spaces for students to display their academic brilliance without sacrificing their identities. Building on the ideas introduced in his New York Times best-selling book, For White Folks Who Teach in the Hood, Ratchetdemic advocates for a new kind of student identity-one that bridges the seemingly disparate worlds of the ivory tower and the urban classroom. Emdin argues that being "ratchetdemic,” or both ratchet and academic (like having rap battles about science, for example), can empower students to embrace themselves, their backgrounds, and their education as parts of a whole, not disparate identities. This means celebrating protest, disrupting the status quo, and reclaiming the genius of youth in the classroom.
