FEBRUARY 21, 2021
#ELANreads #GutterChild

How can educators build anti-oppressive classrooms for the 21st Century? How do we empower students to think, write, speak, and act from a foundation of anti-racist and abolitionist values and perspectives? ELAN Ontario welcomes author and FOLD creator and director Jael Richardson to discuss her new YA novel, Gutter Child,” part of the long tradition of Black excellence in authors who are perfect for your secondary classroom. Join host Mel Riley, Gutter Child educator’s guide authors Alexiis Stephen and Melissa Fleming, and our guest panel of literacy educators from across Ontario, to discuss the effective use of anti-oppressive reading materials and approaches in the secondary English classroom.
