About the talk
Too often, schools inhibit inquiry and knowledge ownership in students. Some argue that this reinforces oppression. If we teach who we are (Palmer, 2009), educators are potential agents of oppression, imposing their identities and ways of knowing onto students.
Through this session, instructional coach and educator Darnell Fine will explore how as middle-level educators working with students building their sense of self, you can model an ongoing interrogation into who we are and what we know. You will also explore the value of critical reflection even as teachers and reimagine schools as sites of radical self-inquiry in both adults and students.
