Cultural Awareness Seminars for PWEA Members
The PWEA Social Justice Committee will present a 3 part series of Cultural Awareness Seminars.
- September 25, 2019 – Cultural Competence for Educators:
This session challenges educators to examine and strengthen their teaching practices so that every student, from every culture we encounter in school, has the opportunity to be successful.
- October 23, 2019 – Social Justice:
This session provides interactive exercises of social justice contents and highlights the connection between social justice issues and education issues and policies.
- Date TBD – Diversity:
This session explores the evolution of diversity and the impact of diversity in our local, the VEA, and the NEA; discuss, define, and understand the dimensions of diversity; and identify the relationship between core values and behaviors.
All sessions will be held from 5:00-7:00 pm at the PWC Central Library at 8601 Mathis Ave Manassas, VA
Please RSVP to attend any of the sessions, though we hope you can attend all 3!
