FREEDOM SCHOOL WORKSHOP
“The Freedom School Way”, as they call it, actually got its start in the 1960s as part of the civil rights movement. Today there are approximately 200 Freedom Schools nation-wide run under the guidance and support of the Children’s Defense Fund.
The Freedom School’s curriculum focuses on: parental and community engagement; culturally relevant pedagogy; improving literacy; providing music and art education; and the promotion of positive and productive mentoring relationships between teachers and students.
Most Freedom Schools provide summer and after-school enrichment programming which help children fall in love with reading, increase their self-esteem, and generate more positive attitudes toward learning.
Children are taught using a model curriculum that supports children and families around five essential components: high quality academic enrichment; parent and family involvement; civic engagement and social action; intergenerational leadership development; and nutrition, health and mental health.
Since this conference is all about solutions, attend this workshop so that you can learn how you open a Freedom School in your own community. This workshop will be conducted by leaders of one of the most successful Freedom Schools in our nation. If you believe that education provides the best vehicle to freedom, you won’t want to miss this workshop.
