The Inclusive Pedagogy Reading Group welcomes faculty, instructors, postdocs, and graduate students who want to explore topics around inclusion, teaching and learning.  It is an open discussion group facilitated by Cheryl Richardson, Associate Director for Inclusive Teaching Initiatives.

This quarter we will read Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom by bell hooks. The Publisher notes: “In this book, bell hooks, one of America's leading black intellectuals, shares her philosophy of the classroom, offering ideas about teaching that fundamentally rethink democratic participation. Hooks advocates the process of teaching students to think critically and raises many concerns central to the field of critical pedagogy, linking them to feminist thought. In the process, these essays face squarely the problems of teachers who do not want to teach, of students who do not want to learn, of racism and sexism in the classroom, and of the gift of freedom that is, for hooks, the teacher's most important goal.”

Please RSVP here for the Inclusive Pedagogy Reading Group Meeting on Thursday, November 20, 2019 from 3:30pm-5pm in Wieboldt Hall Room 310 D/E. Please contact Cheryl Richardson (richardsonc@uchicago.edu) with any inquiries.
