I want to express my appreciation for the opportunity to represent SEED at the 2013 National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME) Conference held in Oakland, California, November 6 to 10, 2013. It was an important chance to not just promote SEED and the summer New Leadersâ Week, but to also meet so many educators from around the country, pre-K through graduate schools, committed to restoring education to its proper place as merging one's thirst for knowledge with the ability to teach as well as learn.
SEED Co-director Emily Style wrote "Curriculum as Window and Mirror" in 1988, shortly after she and SEED Founder Peggy McIntosh held the first week-long summer workshop of what would become SEED. It has remained a key piece that informs the work of SEED leaders ever since. Read it for the first time, or reread it to see what resonates with you now.
Going to the National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME) Conference in Oakland, California, November 6-10?
