Increasing Equity Practices: Featuring Andre Daughty
In a previous Aspire episode, I had a wonderful conversation with Dr. Sheldon Eakins as we discussed the issues of racial justice, equity and implicit bias. After that conversation, I was convicted to assess not only my own practices, but the practices of my school to determine the biases that exist. I didn’t want to stop the conversation there. This week, I have an amazing leader, Andre Daughty, as we focus on the questions, what is the starting point for a school or a district to create equitable practices?
Andre shares a variety of stories on how to:
Use Student Interest to Guide Engagement
Identify Multiple Intelligences
Diversifying Literature Options for students
And Andre’s YouTube Channel
About Andre Daughty:
Andre Daughty's educational journey truly began after hearing Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu state, "If you observe children, they will teach you how to teach them." That phrase shifted Andre's philosophy of education. By observing the students in his own classroom at the elementary, secondary and post-graduate level, he differentiated curriculum and projects based on his students' interests. His workshops and professional development seminars involve high energy, practical ways to use today’s strategies, collaboration and fun stories to help connect the content to attender’s lives. He enjoys inspiring all through workshops, speaking engagements, seminars and embedded coaching experiences.
