Webinar to Examine Equitable Learning in K-12 Classrooms

Featuring Ladson-Billings Outstanding Book Award Winner David Stroupe

As school leaders, educators make instructional decisions shaping opportunities in classrooms for students to learn. An educator’s words and actions, especially related to the treatment of students and their ideas, are foundational for creating equitable learning communities in our classrooms and schools.

On Wednesday, May 1, from 2:00 to 2:45 p.m. ET, AACTE will host a Lunch & Learn recognizing the 2024 Gloria J. Ladson-Billings Outstanding Book Award winner David Stroupe, Ph.D., of the University of Utah and his book, “Growing and Sustaining Student-Centered Science Classrooms.”

In this AACTE Lunch & Learn, Stroupe will discuss the creation and growth of learning communities through a particular lens of inequity: epistemic injustice, a philosophical perspective that deals with inequities associated with knowledge and knowledge production practices. Using his award-winning book, Stroupe will guide us in creating concrete examples from classrooms and will imagine how we can create more equitable learning spaces.

The Gloria J. Ladson-Billings Outstanding Book Award is granted by AACTE’s Committee on Research & Dissemination as part of its charge in advising and assisting the Association in facilitating, promoting, and disseminating research. Co-chair of this committee, Nicholas Daniel Hartlep, Ph.D. of Berea College will also be speaking on the book award and is available to answer questions about the nomination process.
