Let’s Move Forward, and Not Slip Back Into the Old Paradigm, July 7, 2020
with Darin Earley, Veteran LAUSD Teacher/Administrator, Los Angeles, Director of Family of Schools, Loyola Marymount University

DESCRIPTION: With a passion for people and applied Black history, Dr. Earley  will take an authentic look at the social and emotional health of our society. Looking through a historical lens, this workshop will juxtapose contemporary issues with historical truths, narratives and counter-narratives.  Addressing the essential questions of “Who am I?”; “Where do I belong?”; and “What can I do?”, participants will learn strategies for practical social action, and be equipped to model and support others in developing the skills to facilitate community change.
Building Community in the Virtual Classroom

What happens to Place Based Learning when we are sequestered? How do we share the stories that provide understanding of ourselves and our communities? Join us in bringing community, connection and deeper meaning to the virtual classroom (and beyond). We are harnessing this unprecedented opportunity of crisis and isolation and transforming it into an opportunity to strengthen and restore ourselves, our students, and our communities.

During the Seminar Series veteran teachers  will share innovative and highly doable ideas that break down physical walls using storytelling techniques that cross disciplines. Seminar workshop leaders are longtime CWI associates who come from K-16 classrooms, administrators concerned with larger issues of equity, along with community-based educator-innovators from a wide array of fields, including the arts, science, folklore, social justice, and more.

Make Important Connections
Seminar participants will experience new ways of working with a variety of exciting online apps that facilitate storytelling, community connections, and the spirit of CWI’s Place Based Service-Learning, Sustainability, and Global Citizenship initiatives. Before the seminar, participants will be invited to make connections with other participants and CWI will provide additional ways to continue those connections as ongoing supportive relationships.
