    1. 2/24/17, 10 am -2 pm, Workshop conducted by Mr. Steve Becton, Facing History and Ourselves, Associate Program Director, Urban Education (Lunch and snacks will be provided.)Creating An Identity Safe and Culturally Responsive Learning CommunityThis session will use a multimedia presentation, primary source documents, and interactive discussion models for a critical understanding of the role that various forms of bias play in the way that we interact in the learning community  with others  that are racially, culturally,  and/or socioeconomically  different from ourselves.  A unique feature of this session is placing  issues of race in an historical context. The session would model  proven  pedagogical  strategies for discussing race and other contemporary issues in a safe and reflective manner.  In addition, participants  will explore  potential mindset shifts and  best practices that will lead to more culturally responsive interactions among students, faculty, and staff. The session is free from “blame” and “shame” but is built from a place of a shared desire for a more rich learning environment for all.
