Join the Urban Teaching Fellows Program at Rutgers Graduate School of Education for Urban Teaching Matters, a conference by and for urban educators, designed for mutual exchange of ideas, support and inspiration. 

The conference will include:

  • Facilitated discussions on topics such as influencing policy and serving as advocates, student-centered pedagogy in urban settings, the school community connection, being a white teacher of students of color, and building a well-rounded life to sustain your teaching

  • Workshops on topics such as teaching about Ferguson, incorporating youth participatory action research into your classroom, classroom management in challenging settings, literacy strategies,  and integrating technology in resource-limited schools

  • Plenty of time for networking, mutual sharing and support.

All workshops and discussions will be led by urban educators.

The keynote speaker is David Dante TrouttProfessor of Law, Justice John J. Francis Scholar, and the founding director of the Rutgers Center on Law in Metropolitan Equity. He teaches, researches and writes about the intersections of race, class and place. His recent book, The Price of Paradise: The Costs of Inequality and a Vision for a More Equitable America (NYU Press, January 2014) explores the role that place plays into our thinking and how we have organized our communities to create or deny opportunity.  

Certificates that may qualify you to receive professional development hours will be available at the end of the day.
