Urban Educators Collective
A collaborative professional development program to provide resources and support for problems of practice common to schools in urban areas.
The CASDA Urban Educators Collective is a collaborative professional development program that convenes teachers, administrators and staff to provide resources and support for problems of practice common to schools in urban areas. Utilizing equity-focused research, we will explore ways to improve current practice while empowering educators, students, families, and community members to build more inclusive, responsive schools. Participants will be given opportunities to reflect on their work, share challenges and success stories and seek feedback from colleagues to deepen their knowledge of the many intersecting issues that impact cities, their schools and the students they serve.
Sessions will be loosely organized around the leadership standards highlighted in “Radical Recentering: Equity in Educational Leadership Standards” (Galloway & Ishimaru, 2015). Topics will include but not be limited to:
Engaging in Self-Reflection and Growth for Equity
Creating and Enacting an Equity Vision
Supervising for Equitable Teaching and Learning
Collaborating with Families and Communities
Equitable Resource Allocation
