Diversity and Thriving in Schools

On October 2, 2010, Sonia Nieto, a prominent writer on multicultural education, delivered the keynote address at the 3rd Annual Northwest Teaching for Social Justice Conference at Madison High School in Portland. Nieto's talk is the subject of "Diversity and Thriving in Schools" (VB #77.12&13). Nieto is the author of "What Keeps Teachers Going?" and the editor of "Why We Teach."

In her talk, Nieto uses interviews with teachers from around the country to address topics like "Teachers who have confronted their own assumptions and biases are effective with students of diverse backgrounds," and questions such as "What does it mean to thrive?" Our weekly show strives to educate the public about social justice issues--this program is about how teachers can create social justice in the classroom.
