Why aren’t more teachers involved in education policy? And what can we do to help get them there? Come and spend time exploring the latest research into the perceived lack of teacher input in education policy, and then hear an overview of the skills, dispositions, and knowledge that could help get more teachers at the table. We’ll then spend some time engaging in activities based on the research:
- Building a courageous mindset
- Developing our “policy fluency”
- Learning from great communicators
Whether helping students in your classroom develop their advocacy skills or thinking of building your own, this is sure to spur the development of your advocacy mojo!
