Come and learn three standards-aligned strategies for integrating diversity, equity, and inclusion into your ELA lessons. The strategies include 1) sharing content that addresses race and racism head on, 2) elevating student voice, so that students hear and respond to diverse peers, and 3) incorporating ways for students to use their own voice in class and via the lessons you share.


    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • ABE English Language Arts and Social Studies teachers of all levels

When we think about bringing up DEI-related themes in the classroom, the first strategy that may come to mind is addressing racism head on. This, of course, is an important strategy, but is not necessarily the strategy you should lean on the most. In this webinar, we will look at resources that help you take the head-on approach, but we will also look at two other strategies: 1. elevating student voice in just about any lesson (whether the content is DEI-related or not), and 2. choosing lessons (or creating extensions) that support students to take action and/or advocate for themselves, thus lifting up students as agents of change in their own lives and in their community. You can do all this in the classroom in ways that integrate with your existing lessons and are clearly aligned to the standards for teaching ELA. 

Participants will receive 1.5 hours of PD credit upon completion of this webinar.

Please note: 1– 2 days before the event, registrants will receive a separate email from the SABES ELA team at World Education with instructions on how to access the Zoom session. For additional information, contact Evonne Peters,
