The workshop will explore Black girls’ experiences in the K-12 space. Recent research has demonstrated the challenges that Black girls experience including adultification, isolation, silencing, and pushout to name a few. In spite of this, many Black girls are thriving. We will explore this notion of Black girl magic in the context of academic achievement and what is important as support and resources to ensure their success for a bright future.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Overview of the state of black girls in K-12
- Identify experiences that prove to be barriers and challenges to academic achievement and mental health well being
- Strategies educators can use to increase engagement of black girls in the classroom to achieve academic success
