School Culture and Climate Institute

Offered In partnership with

In this virtual Museum of Tolerance Institute participants will focus on cultivating a school climate that supports the goals of anti-bias and social justice education. Participants will consider how identity, diversity, justice and action can be leveraged to effectively support students and families, and discuss ways to continue building capacity in culturally responsive teaching that centers social justice issues and critical consciousness while supporting students' individual needs.

Participants will leave the Institute with the tools to:

  • Identify characteristics of school environments that reflect diversity, equity and justice.
  • Gain strategies for investigating approaches to educational leadership, including interrogating our individual circle of control and ability to influence important inclusive practice in educational institutions-digitally and in-person.
  • Engage in ongoing reflection on their circle of concern, circle of influence and circle of control as it relates to their role as an educator.

This interactive experience is both synchronous and asynchronous. Asynchronous content includes on-demand museum virtual tours, reviewing recommended resources, and sharing reflections on the dedicated FlipGrid page. Live sessions include special speakers such as a Holocaust Survivor and/or Dr. Terrence Roberts of the Little Rock Nine, and/or other witnesses to history. Facilitators welcome and host everyone in small and large groups for dialogue and debrief with peers. The live workshops are led by experts from Learning For Justice using a variety of interactive modalities and online resources. Confirmed registered participants will receive an email from the Program Coordinator during the week prior to the event with the agenda, links to the Zoom events, and Flipgrid passcode protected pages.

Registering 60 people maximum. All courses are eligible for CEU credits.
