Last week`s gathering at Lead Cameron doubled as not only the last Coffee of the school year, but also our last Study Group meeting of the year. We`ve been on a journey together reading Dr. Jarvis Givens` Fugitive Pedagogy. We focused on the ways in which our shared reading, learning, and growing is informing our plans for next school year and for creating the types of classroom communities that support all learners. The book and our conversations provided us all with a chance to closely examine power structures in our schools as well as in our city and state. Beyond grateful for the dedication, brilliance, and engagement of the 25+ teachers that made this year`s Study Group so effective and motivating. Bonus - @mrs.ahford read us @adalimonwriter`s poem "A New National Anthem" after our extended conversation about Lift Every Voice and Sing.
