The Power of Disruptive Innovation in Education

2/7/2024
Zaretta Hammond is an educator focused on literacy and equity. She is a former classroom writing teacher. And is a lover of all things Marvel. She’ll quote the Lord of the Rings at any opportunity she gets. In her spare time, you’ll find her reading up on cognitive neuroscience or out in nature and can be seen routinely hugging trees. Show Highlights Culturally responsive teaching isn’t hot sauce The ripple effect caused by leaders ignoring the slow burn of “Cognitive Redlining.” Embrace intellectual curiosity and encourage students to chase their own curiosity. Instructional Coaches are the “linchpin” to bridging the gap between leadership and teachers for pedagogical legacy. Make that first pancake and build collective intellectual curiosity and transformative practices that are important to your community. Questions to consider in the instructional core include how to help confused students and how to encourage the use of new skills. How to assess the current reality in classrooms to identify areas for improvement. “Even when we talk about equity, it doesn't always mean you have to be talking about race. You have to have an understanding of how inequity actually presents itself in your environment and therefore know where to place those disruptive innovations, how to get those people that are the resistant minority to be part of the crew, part of the effort to make shifts. How do we reignite their idealism and move them into it? I think it's a small thing. Again, invite them to follow their intellectual curiosity.” -Zaretta Hammond Get episode transcript here!!

There's a lot of leaders out there who I talk to who are struggling and a lot of leaders out there who are ambitious and ready to take on the world.

I'm a dad who happens to be an entrepreneur, not an entrepreneur who happens to be a dad. I would never let entrepreneur life destroy my family life.

She is also the author of the children’s book, “There’s Something in the Water”, a story that highlights the real life of Dr. Tyrone B. Hayes, an endocrinologist from UC Berkeley. As a woman of color and a mom of two girls, access and opportunity in STEM are personal for her. She believes that in order for us to increase our representation in STEM, we must create an identity in STEM. Her doctoral dissertation was on "The Successful Implementation of STEM Initiatives in Lower Income Schools". Leena travels the world as a keynote speaker, inspiring audiences in education, leadership, and technology to think about equitable STEM education and how to ensure access for all. Her next book, Teaching and Learning in STEM, #4Real will be coming soon in October of 2024. Show Highlights Investigate the hesitancy of teachers towards discussing justice and anti bias topics.

Create a transparent budget aligned with the priorities of your community. Pull leaders out of the weeds with a candid assessment of school priorities. The challenges created by neglecting science and history curriculum. “The system is not set up to disrupt itself, to innovate, to redesign, but we need that because just looking at the results that kids experience we know that they're inequitable. If you're okay with that, keep doing what we're doing and maintain the system. If that bothers you. Our kids deserve better and equity is something we should all be fighting for, then how are we changing the system to produce a better result?” -Chief Ruckus Maker Danny Bauer “There's a program called the Anti Bias and Education Grant that came out of California, and this word anti bias has so much energy where some leaders are saying, you know what, I think we should just call it something else or let's kind of tippy toe around the word or let's not say the word. I don't want to dissuade people from coming. And there's part of me that's like, no, there is bias. We're going to address it, we're going to go head on. And then another part of me that's like, well, yeah, maybe we can change the word and invite people in and call them in and see what way we can handle it. And that's just with one word, anti bias.” - Dr. Leena Bakshi McLean Get the episode transcript here!

Creating Equity and Fairness for All Students

1/10/2024
Jason Ablin, the author of The Gender Equation in Schools: How To Create Equity and Fairness For All Students, consults with schools across the country regarding gender and creating positive school cultures. At American Jewish University’s Graduate School for Education, he trains teachers to create gender aware classrooms and is also the founder/director of AJU’s Mentor Teacher Certification Program. Show Highlights Be able to receive feedback from a “cringe worthy moment.” Practical tools to frame and drive transformation based on issues of gender in schools. The Gender Equation is a vehicle for helping students experience success. Validate your teachers with questions instead of framing conversation through a specific lens. Lead from the middle and avoid aspirational leadership that alienates people who are trying to work together. Meet the goal of liberating students. Order, conformity, and obedience are the enemy of authentic education, and schools that are way too quiet. “You should feel like if we're really talking about making school like the real world, the school should be a place where we're literally teaching students how to enact their freedoms and speak up against systems which are not working well, whether it's at work or whether it's in your community or whether it's in your religious establishment, whatever it is. But you see yourself as a real change maker in the world because you see yourself as free. Everything in the school is surrounded by that principle and ideal.” -Jason Ablin Get the episode transcript here!

Rachel shares other models of leadership to consider for transformational leadership to challenge the impact of current systems. Empower everyone to be a learner by emphasizing the importance of questioning. Intentionality and the power of having protocols. “And the success that I had over the years has really been closely related to my ability to let down my guard, to bring my authentic self to space, and to allow others to do the same. In any thorny challenge I have ever had, leading schools or working with principals, I bring that problem right back to the team because it's our problem that we own together. I think that's made me pretty successful, I should really say the teams are very successful.” -Rachel Roberts “Never stop learning and to find those stories that align to your authentic selves, and to also recognize that every one of your staff members needs to be able to bring their true, authentic self. And they can only do that if you do that. It takes that intentionality. It takes a lot of thinking on your part around who I am and how I can intentionally connect with everyone to make a school, to make a community, a place where they can do that themselves.” -Rachel Roberts Get the episode transcript here!
