"Stakes Is High": Educating New Century Students

Education - Lecture/Discussion

Thursday, December 5, 2013
4:00 PM-5:00 PM

Higgins University Center
Tilton Hall

Today's students are more technologically competent and globally connected than ever. However, those charged with teaching them often fail to fully engage "New Century" students and miss opportunities to make maximum use of the exciting culture they are creating. Gloria Ladson-Billings, one of Americas leading educational theorists, will address the way youth culture is re-shaping culturally relevant pedagogy to cross racial, cultural, gender, linguistic, and global boundaries.

Co-Sponsored with Mosakowski Institute for Public Enterprise, Jacob Hiatt Center for Urban Education and Adam Institute for Urban Teaching and School Practice

Suggested Audiences: Middle School, High School, College, Adult, Elders
