11:00-12:00 p.m. ................................“The Use of Social Emotional Learning and Culturally Responsive Teaching During COVID-19

This interactive presentation will provide teachers with culturally relevant practices to meet learners’ social emotional needs. It will include trauma-informed practices to assist classroom teachers as they navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic. The research-based practices are embedded in a framework developed by the Center for Reaching and Teaching the Whole Child (see attached) and incorporate Zaretta Hammond’s work, Culturally Responsive Teaching and The Brain. Teachers are encouraged to hone their culturally responsive lens in the following ways: exploring assumptions, modeling, providing practice and self-reflection. Three Anchor Competencies from the Social Emotional Learning/Culturally Responsive Teaching (SEL/CRT) framework will be targeted: building trusting relationships, fostering self-reflection and responding constructively to conflict across disciplines. For each anchor competency, scenarios and hands-on activities will be provided. Participants will be provided with innovative ways to incorporate social justice activities into their lessons. Participants will also receive a toolkit that will assist them during the school year.

1:00-2:00 p.m. ....................................“Unmasking the Trauma of COVID-19 and George Floyd in Pre-Service Teacher Preparation

In the College of Education at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NC A&T), the guiding theme is “Learn to Lead. Lead to Transform: Equity, Access, and Advocacy.” The College of Education strives to produces candidates, known as Aggie Educators, who serve as classroom leaders and advocate for equity in the schools in which they serve. As the nation’s largest historically Black college or university (HBCU), NC A&T provides opportunities for large numbers of students from diverse backgrounds to become qualified teachers. Faculty in the Department of Educator Preparation consistently work to equip pre-service teachers with the requisite content knowledge and high-leverage practices to immediately affect change in the classrooms in which they serve. Moreover, faculty work to provide opportunities for candidates to practice advocacy skills and address issues of inequity and bias within their school communities. This resolution to prepare preservice teachers who address inequity and bias aligns with the university’s rich history that includes a significant role in the struggle for civil rights for African Americans. In 1960, Ezell Blair, Franklin McCain, Joseph McNeil, and David Richmond, four freshman students at A&T College, initiated lunch counter sit-ins at Woolworth’s, and their non-violent protest inspired a wave of sit-ins that played a role in raising awareness of and ending segregation in North Carolina. Consequently, NC A&T is uniquely situated to facilitate critical conversations regarding the preparation of preservice teachers during this new landscape that includes the COVID-19 national pandemic, along with the civic demonstrations and protests surrounding the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Rayshard Brooks. Using a podcast format, select NC A&T faculty will engage in discussions on the aforementioned and discuss how these factors impact their practice and share strategies to prepare preservice teachers during these unique times.

2:00-3:00 p.m. ....................................“Reimagining Language and Curriculum to Lever Equitable Classrooms and Schools

COVID-19 and deepening awareness of racial and social injustices have challenged educators to reimagine ways to support pre-service and practicing teachers and the students and families they serve. As the country and its schools move forward during and post pandemic, educators must re-envision the curriculum and language of teaching and learning. Comprised of four presentations led by pre-service teachers, practicing educators and school administrators, and teacher education faculty, this session will empower teacher voice and student identity to explore initiatives around language and curriculum as a lever for equitable classrooms and schools.
