Creating Poems and Stories from Faculty Book Studies

This session is a sharing of poetry and stories presented as analyzed data from two separate dissertations written by two administrators serving in the same school.  Both administrators participated in separate, simultaneous book studies of The Dreamkeepers:  Successful Teachers of African American Children (2009) by Gloria Ladson-Billings.  Participants explored  culturally relevant pedagogy as a means of examining sensitive issues such as language, culture, race, and ethnicity in an urban elementary school.
