There is a big gap in knowing what the best practices are and actually implementing them in an effective way. There are strategies and practices that are incredibly beneficial in helping historically marginalized students accelerate their learning. However, teachers often know these best practices but they do not line up with what they are actually implementing in their classrooms. Our guest, Zaretta Hammond, is giving us some insight into the importance of instructional equity and erasing cognitive red lines.
Zaretta is a national consultant who focuses on instructionally-focused equity work. She strives to equip and empower coaches with the right information to manage change for equity. She is supporting coaches through her book Culturally Responsive Teaching and The Brain, her newsletter, and her PLC.
In this episode, Zaretta is giving us a preview of her session at the Simply Coaching Summit. She is sharing her journey in education, her passion for literacy, and why she wrote her book. She is also diving into culturally respective practices and instructional equity, how she helps to equip and empower coaches to manage change for equity, the difference in instructional decision making and execution, and the missing piece between knowing the strategies and practices that help historically marginalized students and actually implementing them to better engage students.
