Educational Equity: The Skills We Need NOW (No Cost for TMI PLC Members)

April 20, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Educational equity implies that every student has access to the resources and educational rigor they need at the right moment in their education despite race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, language, disability, family background, or family income.

Currently, many are coming to terms with the realization that our current and historical place of power, privilege, oppression, resistance, empowerment, and self-determination is raced, classed, aged and gendered.  Our classrooms and schools are microcosms of this society writ large. As educators, we may not have the opportunity to make the changes at policy level that are necessary, but we sure as heck can make the changes that are necessary in our classrooms, once we know how!

This learning opportunity addresses the question: 

What would our class/school/world be like if we saw ourselves in each other?

If this question calls to you, if you practice moral leadership, please join us!

We will share, discuss and apply:

  • Using Developmental Relationships to broaden our global lens
  • Connecting student’s cultural assets and references to academic concepts and skills
  • Employing curricula/activities that encourage student reflection on their own lives and society,
  • Supporting student cultural competence by facilitating learning about their own and other cultures
  • Creating classrooms to which folks want to belong!

If this is the path you’re on – we are here for you! We are a force moving in the right direction!

Instructor: Sharon McCarthy, EnVision President and TMI Lead Consultant and SEL Specialist

Payment Methods and Cancellation/Refund Policy: Payment can be made by purchase order (PO) or check. Please mail all correspondence, including purchase orders, checks and agreements to TMI Education at PO Box 922, Madison, NJ 07940. If you are unable to attend a program for which you have registered, email TMI Education at info@tmieducation or call seven (7) days prior to the program to request a refund. No refunds will be granted unless notification is provided within this time frame. TMI Education reserves the right to cancel events for any reason, including inclement weather and instructor illness. If TMI Education makes the decision to cancel a workshop, we will use the EMAIL contact information you have provided to us to inform you. In addition, we will post the announcement of cancellation on the respective TMI Education website workshop page. If TMI Education cancels, participants will be provided a choice of:

  • a full refund;
  • transfer to another, upcoming workshop date and location (space permitting); or
  • credit toward a future workshop. (Please note that all credits expire one (1) year from the date that they are issued.)

Video-Recorded Virtual (Zoom) Sessions and Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Recorded Session:  As an added value, all virtually-delivered programs are video recorded and accessible to our workshop registrants and Professional Learning Consortium Members subsequent to the session. Therefore, each virtually-delivered workshop and webinar will now have Zoom’s Recording Disclaimer enabled by default. With this feature, attendees will receive a notification when a recording starts or if they join a session that is already being recorded. The participant can then consent to stay in the session and be recorded or choose to leave the session altogether.

Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Virtually-Delivered Session: Actively engaging in Zoom sessions is important. Participants may have concerns, however, of a Zoom session recording capturing their participation. Meeting hosts or instructors are taking steps to minimize this concern. In addition to the consent, participants can also use the following steps and features to take control of what is shared when a session is being recorded.

  • Change your participant name displayed in Zoom (e.g. only use your first name, replace your name)
  • Disable your video
  • Mute your audio
  • Do not communicate via the chat feature
  • Do not upload an identifiable profile photo

Please refer to Zoom’s Attendee Controls for more information on how to use these features.
