In states across the U.S. and in countries around the world, policymakers have passed or are considering legislation to restrict topics that educators are allowed to discuss in their classrooms, including racism and gender identity. At the same time, many communities are becoming more diverse and equitably teaching all children – including those from ethnically/racially minoritized groups, multi-lingual learners, immigrant youth, and those with different gender identities – is a pressing need as educators seek guidance about how to teach and support the development of all children in their classrooms. The goal of this preconference is to provide research evidence and guidance on how to build ethnically, racially, linguistically, socio-culturally responsive and inclusive classrooms. The preconference will present cutting-edge research on the science of equitable and inclusive teaching and opportunities to discuss the implications of those research findings for both classroom practice and for policy.
