Lisa Delpit will deliver spring edition of #CUEtalks
Join the Center for Urban Education for the spring 2018 edition of #CUEtalks when we welcome Dr. Lisa Delpit, who will deliver, "The Stories We Tell: Transforming Narratives About "Other People's Children." In this talk, Dr. Delpit addresses how the stories our country has told us about certain people distort our perceptions and create self-fulfilling stereotypes of low performance. If we change our stories, we can both change the ways we think about children and the ways they think about themselves. Increasing student performance is not just a matter of increasing rigor; we must develop a different set of lenses to really see the brilliance of the children before us.
