Learn, laugh and lead with Dr. Brown at the Good Teaching Conference

The first evening, Sept. 28, of ISTA’s Good Teaching Conference Virtual Series is centered around diversifying your curriculum. Reaching and teaching students from every background, creating empathetic students and building an inclusive classroom.

The conference keynote speaker, Dr. Adolph Brown, III, will dive into these topics as he kicks off this Good Teaching Conference. Our members have been asking for Dr. Brown, and we are excited to finally deliver!

Dr. Brown describes himself as a “servant-leader at heart, a life-long social justice advocate and a career teacher educator.” He spent his education career in schools as a special and alternative education teacher and juvenile justice psychologist, and he now serves as an education consultant and motivational speaker.

His keynote address, “Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover! Culturally Responsive Teaching,” will explore prejudices in decision making that impact our students. He’ll push you to delve deeper using the concepts of diversity, inclusion, equity and fairness to help your students succeed.

The Good Teaching Conference Virtual Series will run through Oct. 1, and the other programming includes:

Sept. 29 | Jump Start the Year and Your Career
Sept. 30 | Tech Talk
Oct. 1 | Strategies for the Classroom
