Hilltop Educator Institute Presents:
Can We Talk about Socioeconomic Status and Class?
Saturday, January 26th, 2019
Facilitated by Alison Park

Location: The Bush School


This daylong professional growth workshop is all about socioeconomic status and class identity, culture and diversity: what they are; why they matter in teaching, learning and students overall experiences at their school; and how educators can advance equity and inclusion in our learning communities. Participants will practice having vital conversations about SES and class matters in education and will walk away with more try tomorrow (Pollock, 2008) language, tools and frameworks to name and explore with students.
