Disrupting the Pedagogy of Low Expectations

TIME: January 26, 5:30 – 6:30 pm MST

Current pedagogical beliefs have normalized the resigned acceptance that we have a disproportionate number of students from marginalized populations leaving school with low literacy. We at IDA (International Dyslexia Association) Ontario do not accept this as an inevitability. The evidence clearly shows that when provided with evidence-based instruction within a system that implements equitable policies for assessment and support, marginalized students can learn to read as well as their privileged peers.

Please join us on Wednesday, January 26th at 5:30 pm MST, for a webinar panel discussion exploring how we can dismantle the ideas and disrupt the systems that have perpetuated and excused inequity for too long. We will also discuss what you can do to help ensure that the findings and recommendations of the OHRC’s Right to Read Inquiry spark real action and positive changes in your community.
