Facilitating Equity

Facilitating Equity

Through reflection on this week’s Required Studies and your personal experiences with equity and equality, consider how you might best impact change in your professional world. While you might not have the power to enact system-wide change, you have the power to begin change in your community of learners. Reflection on change: In 1-2 pages, identify a change you believe you could make in your classroom, school, or professional life that would support the notion of excellence through equity. What is one small thing you could implement right away that would make a difference for your students or community members? Describe the change as well as the rationale for it and the intended outcome you would like to see. How will you know it is successful? Bringing students into the conversation: Develop an age- or content-appropriate strategy to help students recognize the differences between equity and equality. Design a short description of the lesson you would teach or activities you would use to help students grasp the distinction and become members of the community who are committed to supporting each other succeed. Support your statements with evidence from the Required Studies and your research. Cite and reference your sources in APA style.
