The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) cordially invites you to a special opportunity in the Twin Cities area! As an NCTE member, you will have complimentary access to the Feminist Teacher Workshop hosted by the National Women’s Studies Association on Thursday, November 10, 2022, in Minneapolis.
Feminist Teacher Workshop, Thursday, November 10, 2022, 9 a.m.–4 p.m.
NEW: presenter Loretta J. Ross is named a MacArthur Fellow.
This daylong Feminist Teacher Workshop centers teaching at the convergence of women of color feminisms and intersectionality, Black girl studies and film studies, reproductive justice and racial justice, and abolition feminisms and feminist pedagogies. Throughout the day, teachers will make the connection between culturally sustaining and responsive pedagogies and critical feminist theories, curricula, and activism to engage their students in middle through high school classrooms in English, history, social studies, health, and wellness.
Our opening keynote will feature Lisa Covington on curricula that centers Black girls, film, and media literacy. Following the keynote, our first workshop features English teacher-scholar-activist, Ileana Jiménez, who will share practices on teaching #MeToo in today’s classrooms, including the documentary Anita Hill: Speaking Truth to Power (2013) and other curricular and activist pedagogies. This session will be immediately followed by a NWSA-led conversation with Anita Hill during the lunch hour.
The afternoon will feature a workshop led by Black feminist scholar Qiana Cutts, who will lead a workshop on Black feminist poetics including reflective writing, storytelling, and other forms of creative practice.
