#vted Reads: Equity & Cultural Responsiveness in the Middle Grades by The 21st Century Classroom published on 2021-02-24T22:41:33Z In this episode, middle school equity scholar Kathleen Brinegar joins us to talk about her new book, Equity and Cultural Responsiveness in the Middle Grades. We step through two chapters in particular that provide roadmaps for educators to move into being 'co-investigators' with students. Co-investigators f work that is powerful, authentic, and above all, personally relevant and meaningful. We also talk about how we'd really like to do our first year of teaching over. Like, entirely. Fortunately, as educators, we get unlimited do-overs. Today, for instance, is another opportunity to be better, both to one another... and to ourselves. I'm Jeanie Phillips, and this is Vermont Ed Reads: a podcast about books by, for, and with, Vermont educators. Let's chat.
