This webinar will use a few clips from the film to take a deep dive into some of the issues that surfaced and strategies that can be used to create an environment that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion. Issues that will be addressed include:

• Importance of developing student agency
• Impact of implicit and explicit bias, including in matters of learning
• Ability to understand the variability in each learner and how that helps a teacher design classroom environments and instructional choices
• How social awareness and relationship skills can affect learning, especially for adolescents

Presented by Jonathan Piper II, Black Student Union President, Skyline High School, CA; Kelisa Wing, Professional Development Specialist; Medha Tare, Senior Research Scientist, Learner Variability Project, Digital Promise; and Jessica Stovall, former English teacher at Oak Park River and Forest High School, IL, and current Stanford University PhD student in race, inequality, and language in education
