If classroom management is a curriculum – a series of lessons students learn from us – this talk invites us to ask: what do we teach now through our classroom management, and what we might want to teach instead? We will consider the troubling relationships between traditional classroom management approaches and carcerality, and begin to wonder how intentionally shifting our models of power and authority in the classroom might instead support the teaching and learning of freedom. By seeing our troublemakers as a resource to leverage instead of a problem to solve, this talk invites us to imagine classrooms as a space in which we might practice the world we want by rejecting disposability in favor of the struggle for love, justice, care, and healing.

This event is free and open to the public. ASL interpretation and live transcription will be provided.
