The Open Door Series Conference – Call for Proposals
Call for Proposals: Due by March 1, 2020
This year we wish to highlight practices, pedagogies, and initiatives, which empower student populations that are historically pushed to the side. We invite you to share your knowledge in 1-hour sessions on Saturday, April 25, 2020.
Specific attention to the following populations:
- Students with Disabilities
- LGBTQIA Students
- Indigenous Students
- Students of Color
- Undocumented & Mixed Status Students
Please keep the following guiding questions in mind as you compose your proposal. You must address at least one of these questions.
- What are you doing as a researcher/practitioner/educator/counselor/parent/community member to empower students and support them through their schooling experience?
- How do you use literacy/language/leadership to serve and empower said population(s)?
- What practices/strategies do you employ (inside or outside of the classroom) to make spaces more accessible?
The California Reading and Literature Project (CRLP) is one of the California Subject Matter Projects (CSMP), a statewide professional development network comprised of the nine disciplines required for graduation from high school and university admission. CRLP is housed under Center X within the UCLA’s Graduate School of Education and Information Studies (GSE&IS). The CRLP goal is to design programs that identify, develop and provide effective instruction in English Language Arts for all students.
Following the vision and mission of the Center, Project SOL focuses on culturally and linguistically relevant, responsive and sustaining pedagogy through the use of rigorous teaching practices across all content areas through language, literacy and leadership. Project SOL uses the social justice standards and the teacher leadership standards in all learning activities and professional development.
