What I love about this blog post from Diana Minor is the clarity of best practices for creating a culture of equitable practices in her classroom! Minor mentions that equitable learning experiences mean, “the implementation of classroom practices that include building relationships with students that foster community, as well as providing opportunities that level the playing field so all students have equal access in the learning process to become critical thinkers.”
Instructional equity means that every student learns the lesson every day and can demonstrate evidence of their learning – it’s not enough that every student has access to the lesson. In other words: Just because the teacher is teaching the lesson doesn’t mean that every student is learning the lesson.
How does this connect to leadership practices?
The connection is “Leading with Change!” The change to develop and support teachers to influence and transform learning outcomes for students.
