43. Back to Something Better, with Cornelius Minor

Program: Curriculum Instruction and Prof Dev

Audience: Educators

Dates: 10/29/2020

This 3 hour virtual session will explore how our nostalgic reverence for life Pre-March 2020 is misplaced...that even though we felt certain about some things, there were still too many kids, families, and whole communities left at the margins of our work.

The year 2020 has shifted the foundations of the education profession. We mourned the losses of classroom spaces, the ability to see students daily, and the ways that we have traditionally served them. In the face of all these losses, all of us (at some point) have longed for a return to "normal".

During this session we will explore the questions:

What if we do not return to normal?
What if we returned to BETTER?

Cornelius Minor is a Heinemann author and a Brooklyn-based educator who works with teachers, school leaders, and leaders of community-based organizations to support equitable literacy reform in cities across the Globe.
