Transgressing Teacher Education

Date/Time: Wednesday, May 10th, 2023 at 1 p.m ET

The U.S. student population continues to grow increasingly racially, culturally, and linguistically diverse, yet the teaching profession remains unchanged, with over 80% white women. Alice Ginsberg's Transgressing Teacher Education presents strategies, critical questions, and voices of actual teacher candidates that prompt educators to think more critically about their work. This conversation will present the book’s findings and explore strategies for educators wanting to prepare the next generation of teachers to champion social justice and educational equity while actively confronting racist practices in urban education. Participants of this webinar will get a 30% discount code for the book. Click here to purchase the book.
