Description:Participants of this roundtable will be required to read the article Gorskis (2016) article titled, Poverty and ideological imperative: a call to unhook from deficit and grit ideology and strive for structural ideology in teacher education before arriving to the roundtable. During the roundtable, participants will engage in an interactive discussion which will explore educational equity implications of three popular ideological positions that drive educators understanding of, and response to, poverty and economic injustice in schools: deficit ideology, grit ideology, and structural ideology. This offering is open to all CLC employees, but the conversation will be focused on teaching and learning in the classroom and would be more beneficial for CLC Faculty. 1 TLET contact hour will be given to participants who both read and attend the one hour roundtable discussion.
