Overview

Transform your school and your classroom with these best practices in equity

That the typical modern classroom lacks equity will come as no surprise to many educators. But few resources explain how to remedy that situation in the here and now.

Leading Equity delivers an eye-opening and actionable discussion of how to transform a classroom or school into a more equitable place. Through explorations of ten concrete steps that you can take right now, Dr. Sheldon L. Eakins offers you the skills, resources, and concepts you'll need to address common equity deficiencies in education. You'll learn about:

  • Things you can do today to advance the cause of equity in your classroom, from reconsidering your language choices to getting to know yourself and your students
  • Using social justice as the basis for your advocacy for equity
  • How to promote a decolonial atmosphere and model vulnerability and humility for your students and colleagues

Ideal for educators and educational leaders at all stages of their careers, Leading Equity will help you improve your ability to offer an equitable environment to all of your students.
