Transcript of Access and Advocacy


This presentation is an overview of a 90 minute session that is targeted for pre-service teachers. The presentation will focus in the importance of access and advocacy in and outside the classroom. This presentation will serve to provide a brief background description of the achievement gap in the United States and other contributing factors for the low graduation rates of minority students or students of low socioeconomic status. We will examine the different causes of education inequality and the importance of teaching our students to become self-advocates. Furthermore, we will talk about the barriers that we might encounter, ways to remedy these obstacles, and the impact that access and advocacy have on our students’ future.
