Literacy expert Dr. Ernest Morrell maintains that when we build on children's key strengths and immerse them in an intellectually invigorating, emotionally nurturing, literature-rich community, we grow 'super readers' -avid readers who consume texts with passion, understanding, and a critical eye. See how this strength based model applies to learning for literacy and math!

In conjunction with the Responsive Mathematics Conference
The Responsive Mathematics Institute is an opportunity for educators to examine mathematics instruction from an equity perspective. Participants will explore the following questions:
How does identity influence one’s perception of math?
What are strength based instructional models that can be implemented in the mathematics classroom?
How can cultural modeling be embedded within the mathematics classroom?
How have I imposed my biases on students?
What privileges do I have because of my identity?
How can we as educators develop a reflective practice?
