Help Send Highlander Institute to SXSW EDU 2023
Upvote Our Sessions on PanelPicker through August 21
Collaborating with students, parents, & teachers within a school improvement process increases dialogue, improves solutions, & strengthens accountability across a building. In Highlander Institute’s partnership with Baychester Middle School, authentic involvement by design teams has provided a strong foundation for sustainable instructional shifts. Hear how this school is reflecting on student experience data, co-constructing a culturally responsive vision, & implementing high-leverage strategies at scale.
Data has predictably been used as a tool of oppression for some, while simultaneously being used to maximize discovery for others. In this session, we highlight using assessment as liberation for Black and Latinx learners. We will explore a tool that authentically measures a student’s lived experiences, a second informed and validated by the community for culturally affirming instruction, a third that reimagines whole child development; and, how we’ve shattered the assessment paradigm—for good.
