Maranon Davis - The Skin I’m In: Empowering Students to Challenge the Myth of Meritocracy

Data shows kids of color are not thriving in our educational system, why is that and how do we fix it? In this workshop we will explore how the myth of meritocracy shows up in the curriculum of our classrooms leaving students of color and their history of resistance to oppression out of the story. We will identify strategies found in new research that empowers students to challenge the single story being told in our curriculum. We will use the lens of indigenous people and the invisibility of their full story and its impact on their descendants.
