Community Cultural Wealth Series: Familial & Social Capital
November 30, 2021 @ 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM
This conversation series is based on Dr. Tara Yosso’s Community Cultural Wealth (CCW) framework that identifies six forms of “cultural capital.” This framework disrupts our implicit bias by re-framing deficit-thinking into asset-based thinking and acknowledges how the collective resilience of historically-marginalized communities add tremendous value to our classrooms and school communities. The focus of this session will invite reflection on FAMILIAL CAPITAL which refers to those cultural knowledge nurtured among familia (kin) that carry a sense of community history, memory, and cultural intuition and SOCIAL CAPITAL which includes networks of people and community resources.
This workshop is presented by Warren County EA, and all NJEA members are welcome.
