RSVP for NYCoRE’s January Member Meeting at iMentor

**PLEASE NOTE: WE’LL BE BACK AT IMENTOR FOR THIS MONTH’S MEMBER MEETING!**

NYCoRE’s January Member Meeting is happening on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2017.

For the political education piece, New Teacher Underground invites you to share your experiences and questions with educators of all experience levels. We will be using Culture Circles to discuss and create action plans around topics such as the EdTPA, evaluations, tenure, and testing. We plan to use this time to reflect on the insights and resilience of educator activists from the Bloomberg administration on, and how we can use their successes to resist privatization of public education under Trump and Betsy DeVos.

In the second half of the meeting, we will have some time for Working Groups to meet and for new members to become oriented with NYCoRE in our NYCoRE 101 session.

Please join us!

WORKING GROUPS:
CURRICULUM: an open group for participants to discuss curricular challenges and best practices… bring a lesson or unit to workshop for feedback!
FIGHTING PERVASIVE ABLEISM IN EDUCATION: meet with us to build reflexive practices and create strategies and partnerships center our students who are physically and systemically segregated and hidden from neurotypical and able-bodied society
NEW TEACHER UNDERGROUND: a social space for new and alternatively certified teachers to find support and dissect the current realities of education in New York City
