UPDATE: RSVP for NYCoRE’s General Meeting – Fri., Nov. 16th

Join NYCoRE for its November General Meeting

This month’s political education piece:

Making Sense of Sandy

Hurricane Sandy has had a massive impact on our community.

UPDATE: We are asking meeting attendees to please read Naomi Klein’s article in The Nation, Superstorm Sandy–a People’s Shock?

The guiding questions for the reading are as follow:

  • What is your analysis of the response to the storm and the aftermath?
  • How were you, your schools, your students and their families impacted?
  • What are the needs you are still seeing in your community and school?
  • What should radical educators be doing in response

The following break-out groups are also expected to meet:

– NYQueer Curricular Spotlight
Strategic Read-Alouds:  Manufacturing Conversations, “Normalizing” Queer Families

At each monthly NYCoRE meeting, NYQueer will be offering a breakout group that is a mini-workshop with a curricular focus. This month’s breakout is designed for elementary teachers and will emphasize the use of read-alouds that can help you begin introducing LGBTQ themes and/or avoid the pitfalls of a null curriculum in your classroom.

– NYCoRE Annual Conference Planning Group

– A Conversation around Hurricane Sandy 

– A New Teacher Discussion Group

 

For questions, or if you would like to facilitate a breakout group, please e-mail Rosie at Rosie@nycore.org
