Summer Institute: Disrupting Deficit Narratives — May 25 and 26

04.09.2021 | By: Texas Wesleyan University

AVID is presenting a six-hour workshop called “Disrupting Deficit Narratives” on May 25-26, from 9 a.m. to noon. 

Deficit narratives focus on characteristics we ascribe to individuals or categories of individuals, such as “at-risk.” This workshop focuses on how equitable teaching leads to improved outcomes for all students by increasing their motivation to learn. How? By ensuring they feel “seen,” which leads to better academic performance.

Signing up indicates your attendance on both days of this two-part workshop on May 25th and 26th.
