Deeper Learning Conference 2022
Don’t Do Too Much with Josette Neal-De-Stanton: How to make culturally responsive practice and DEI authentically enhance your science assessments.
- Tuesday, March 29th ⋅ 4:30 – 6:00pm PT (in-person)
- Thursday, March 31st ⋅ 9:45 – 11:15am PT (in-person)
This workshop will dive into the importance of incorporating culturally responsive practice and DEI authentically into your classroom! Going beyond adding a trendy handshake or latest song into a presentation, we will be looking into how we use these definitions and principles to create science assessments that are engaging to all demographics, particularly targeting your most disengaged students. Far too often we overthink how to incorporate culture into science, but it is easier than you think, and doesn’t have to involve embarrassment as you fumble to remember the lyrics to a Top 20 song to make a “cultural connection.”
Designed to Thrive with Alcine Mumby & Abby Benedetto: Creating High Quality Performance Assessments That Enable Marginalized Learners to Thrive.

Participants will explore the different features of high-quality performance assessment (HQPA) and design a prototype of a performance assessment experience that provides evidence of student learning/thinking in essential competencies. The session concludes with participants iterating on that prototype after centering the lived experience of a marginalized student your system may serve and reflecting on the changes needed to ensure that ALL students thrive in their performance assessment system.
