“Children learn what they live.” ( Dorothy Law Nolte, 1954) The same is true for teachers. Many of us unwittingly replicate the factory model of education because that is how we have been taught. Rosa Martin-Knoepfel and spiritchild have utilized “critically revolutionary hip hop pedagogy*,” for over a decade to counteract the racist, sexist past of public education and interrupt the school to prison pipeline. This workshop will use a mix of best practices in a variety of arenas, from UDL and trauma informed care, to Multiple Intelligences and NY’s Social Justice Standards to cover why our current teaching methods must be decolonized.
Part two of this two-part series is for the educator who realizes that knowing about pedagogy is one thing, applying pedagogy is another and wants to make an appropriate connection with the participants that she/he is working for and with. The two part series will include lesson templates, project based learning activities, resources and tools for facilitation.
Facilitator: Urban Art Beat
