Deficit Thinking to Asset Thinking: Teacher Strength and Student Strength

CA Perkins-JSPAC Equity Action (5) Webinar Series
v. Deficit Thinking to Asset Thinking: Teacher Strength and Student Strength

May 23, 3:30 PM PST
Online Webinar

Presenter-William Blackford IV - William Blackford IV Consulting, & Senior Consultant for Franklin Covey International and Education Division & Keynote Speaker @ JSPAC Equity Conference 2018

Too often education solutions to close achievement gaps for students of color, underserved, special populations, non-traditional, are approached with a deficit model. “School practices and assumptions emerging from the deficit paradigm often hide student and teacher abilities. These assumptions are especially powerful because they are unspoken. We overlook our taken-for-granted ideas and practices to an extraordinary degree” (Weiner, L, 2006). Often the professional development training aimed at deficit thinking is about students based on the practitioner's deficit however both teacher and student deficit thinking overshadow their abilities.

This webinar will provide practitioners with an asset model approach from the lens of strength based thinking for both practitioners and student.
