Free On-Demand ASCD Archived Webinar with Robert Jackson
Duration: 1 hour, 5 minutes
“They don’t care about their education.” “They are not capable of learning.” “I can’t work with them.” “I can’t get through to them.” Just as educators may have these thoughts about their students, so, too, may students have similar thoughts about them: “She doesn’t care about my education.” “He is not capable of understanding me.” “I can’t work with her.” “I can’t get through to him.”
Every student in your class, building, or school district needs your support, but the male Black and Latino students in particular need you to understand them as you support them so that they can thrive academically. In this webinar, Robert Jackson, author of the book Becoming the Educator They Need: Strategies, Mindsets, and Beliefs for Supporting Male Black and Latino Students, will share strategies for how to work with these young men while building healthy sustaining relationships along the way.
