Building meaningful partnerships and adaptive toys

Making Meaningful Work or Making Work Meaningful?

Session 3
Willa Deitch

Join me in discussing the question that serves as the title to this workshop. Is one more important than the other?

How can our classes offer a chance to bring students' most authentic selves into the classroom?

For Us, By Us: Teachers of Color Leading Black and Brown Students in PBL

Session 4
