Grow Culturally

95% of all human intelligence can be categorized as Tacit or Implicit Knowledge, meaning our perspectives and lived experiences shape our world view and how we eventually come to given conclusions. 26 Ed provides interactive Professional Development which enlightens, and broadens it's participants perspectives leading to improved student outcomes.

Develop a Changed Mindset

26 Ed provides 25+ hours of CEU's, throughout the process of which, participants begin to see their new teachings and way of thinking played out in the classroom and in other student interactions. Over the course of the 12 interactive lessons educators will be exposed to new information, ideas, historical context and ways of thinking that will change their practice.

Watch Your Students Grow

Positive student outcomes, academic and otherwise - this is why we got into teaching and why we created 26 Ed. The framework that 26 Ed is based upon has proven to lead to increased student engagement, fewer referrals and improved standardized test scores. Evoking critical consciousness empowers our students to be the architect of their own eventual outcomes. READ MORE

So How Do We Do This?

 

Educators (Teachers, Social Workers, Support Staff etc) learn how life is lived in forward but understood in reverse. Before we can lead and support others, we must take a deep reflection of ourselves to better understand how to support our students and our communities of color. Our "Humanizing" curriculum will help you uncover and discover your personal identity before diving into the perception and construction of our students communities, eventually ending at the intersection of how our educational practices can sustain hope and healing.

Interactive lessons that help create common understanding and common language building empathy and connection with our students and their communities.

What Educators are saying

As an administrator in MPS, I see great potential value in the proposed diversity, engagement and inclusion modules. I think that they could provide valuable shared learning for building level equity teams. They could also be used to create more district level conversations if used across multiple sites. Schools are often committed to improving racial equity and inclusion at their sites, but at times don't know where to begin making changes. This feels like it could be a tangible tool for that work.
