T4CW 8.24.09: Jeff Duncan-Andrade and the 1st Day of School
To kick off the new school year on Teachers 4 Class War (Mondays 6-7) we spoke with Jeff Duncan-Andrade once again, about the conditions facing teachers this year and every year in the California School system. Jeff has been a frequent guest on the show, and he's the closing speaker at this year's Teachers 4 Social Justice conference. MP3 format, 1.14.57
Jeff really gets into the practical pedagogy of starting off the school year and building relationships with new students and setting priorities for the year ahead. As always we talk about radical teacher networking, identifying allies and building support within schools and communities.
Which leads us to Teachers 4 Social Justice as well: this year's Conference takes place Saturday October 10th from 9-5 at Mission High School • 3750 18th Street, San Francisco
Advance registration and a timely arrival are encouraged--it's always packed--and it's absolutely free of course.
The keynote this year is by Dr. Pedro Noguera, who has also been a guest on T4CW:
Dr. Jeffrey Duncan-Andrade, Ph.D., is Assistant Professor of Raza Studies and Education Administration and Interdisciplinary Studies at San Francisco State University. He has been an urban secondary school teacher for the past 18 years where he researches the use of critical pedagogy in urban schools. He currently teaches 9th grade English at Mandela High School in East Oakland. Check out his book, The Art of Critical Pedagogy: Possibilities for Moving from Theory to Practice in Urban Schools.
