Conference: Equity Oriented Middle Grades Education

The 2023 Middle Grades Conference: Equity Oriented Middle Grades Education


As schools seek to center equity and justice and become trauma-informed, one piece of advice is often repeated: build relationships. But what kind of relationships are the most transformative? How should teachers consider their relationship-building through an equity-centered trauma-informed lens? In Equity oriented middle grades education we value students for who they are, not what they do or how they achieve academically. 

Join us on Saturday, January 21, 2023 (9:00 am - 2:00 pm) for the Middle Grades Conference showcasing effective middle grades practice. There is no fee to attend. The conference will be held at the Davis Center at the University of Vermont. Parking and lunch is included in registration and details will be sent to your email. Please register here.
