Where Do We go From Here: Teaching Students Critical Thinking

Feb 6th, 9:00 am est

The primary responsibility of an educator is to develop an independent thinker and self directed learner, students, who can make judgements, sound decisions, from gathering information, making sense and taking action. Also, not to only pass a test or earn a grade, that is far too simple. The goal is to position students to be able to engage in all the socio-fill-in-the-blank arenas- sociopolitical, socioscientific, socioeconomic- where students of color are underrepresented with the intention to both enhance the quality of their lives and to fortify and strengthen their community’s infrastructure. This requires critical awareness, critical thinking, a deep understanding of the systems and institutions at play, the major power brokers and courage to act. This is our intention when we think of developing, engaging and retaining black male educators.

 

The purpose of the quarterly workshop is to position our participants to better fulfill the educational responsibility outlined above.
