LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Tawnya Lubbes, MTE, assistant professor of education, is the guest presenter for the first colloquium of spring term at EOU Thursday, April 9.
Her discussion of “Responding to the Rural Opportunity Gap through Partnership Initiatives Centered in Culturally Responsive Practices” begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210.
A reception follows and the presentation will also be broadcast live online.
Lubbes poses the question: How do we ensure the educational success of rural students of color? In EOU’s College of Education, the response is to create partnerships with local school districts and communities within the region. These partnerships facilitate a “grow your own” model of pipelines to recruit, support and retain teachers of color.
Participants will have the opportunity to review current research and demographic information in Oregon and hear about two initiatives, the Oregon Teacher Pathway and the Center for Culturally Responsive Practices, which the College of Education is embarking on as a result of two grants from the Oregon Department of Education.
