Our virtual keynote speaker is Dr. Noreen Naseem Rodríguez—Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado Boulder. Dr. Rodríguez's research engages critical race frameworks to explore the pedagogical practices of teachers of color and the teaching of so-called difficult histories through children's literature and primary sources. She is co-author of Social Studies for a Better World: An Anti-Oppressive Approach for Elementary Educators with Katy Swalwell. Before becoming a teacher educator, Noreen was a bilingual elementary teacher in Austin, Texas for nine years.
The virtual component of the conference will also include a panel of K-12 educators and community activists from California’s Central Coast.
The in-person curriculum fair takes place at Cal Poly School of Education. Future and current educators will present original curriculum and engage in thoughtful discussion on issues related to social justice education.
