LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – The second in a new lecture and workshop series at Eastern Oregon University features Dr. Christine E. Sleeter Feb. 27-28.

Activities begin with Sleeter addressing EOU faculty from 1-2:30 p.m. Feb. 27, followed by a community keynote at 6:30 in Huber Auditorium in Badgley Hall. The lecture is free and open to the public.

A corresponding workshop for K-12 educators is Saturday, Feb. 28 with registrations accepted through 12 p.m. Friday, Feb. 13.

Sleeter is a leading international scholar on multicultural teaching in the standards-based classroom. She has authored 19 books and over 100 articles on diversity and education, and is a professor emerita and founding faculty member at Cal State Monterey Bay. Her Ph.D. is from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The lecture and workshop series are sponsored by the Center for Culturally Responsive Practices at EOU, striving to make pedagogy available so school communities can better create classrooms in which student language, culture and backgrounds are responded to and infused within every aspect of education and curriculum.
