Empowering New Teachers for Success in Priority Schools


Thursday, October 29, "Empowering New Teachers for Success in Priority Schools." --  A Forum for Progressive and Education Leaders

The American classroom is becoming more diverse. What are the rich opportunities, challenges and successes in working and supporting these diverse student populations? How can we better prepare our educators so that they not only reflect this diversity but also create effective and culturally relevant pedagogies to support learning in a diverse classroom and thus succeed in the profession? What other key factors also need to be involved? NEA invites you to a forum for our education, advocacy and progressive partners who would respond and shed light to these issues.
