The Equity, Anti-Racism, and Non-Discrimination Department is excited to be hosting author and educator Jo Chrona for what we hope will be a meaningful professional development session for all! Jo is the author of Wayi Wah! Indigenous Pedagogies: An Act for Reconciliation and Anti-Racist Education. This is not a keynote presentation, but rather an opportunity to have a discussion with Jo, ask questions, and collaborate with colleagues regarding how you might apply your learning from her book to your work in schools and classrooms. The first round of registration went out to anti-racism school leads and book club members. If you already registered directly with Nassim, you do not need to register again.
Shape of the Day:
Jo will join us from 1pm-3pm, but the space will be open between 9:30am-1pm for anyone who wants to collaborate and informally connect with other school leads and/or book club members engaged in similar work. We will break for lunch at 12pm and regroup just before 1pm. If you attend the morning session, please bring a laptop and the Wayi Wah! text as you may need both for your collaboration and planning. Snacks provided!
Both sessions will take place in the staff room at Tupper Secondary. You are welcome to register for the workshop even you are only able to join one of the sessions on the day.
