Description

What biases currently underly our public educational system that exclude students' own ways of knowing and being? What future do our students face when this apparatus ignores alternate ways of describing personal experience in today's globalized society? Join Professors Christopher Edmin, Angela Reyes and Debangshu Royshoudry along with Julio Marquez, Chante Raid for a conversation about the developmental and pedagogical repercussions of working with students’ informal discursive skills.

Prof. Christopher Emdin, Teachers College, Columbia University; Prof. Angela Reyes, Hunter College, CUNY; Debangshu Royshoudry, Graduate Center, CUNY; Chante Raid & Julio Marquez, Creative Writing Club & Thesis (student literary magazine), Bronx Community College, CUNY.
