In an age where terms like "multiculturalism" and "cultural relevance" are littered across the educational landscape, teachers and administrators still have a challenging time implementing instructional approaches that meet the needs of a diverse student population. Emdin will explore the current educational buzz words, bridge the divides between theory and practice, and provide tangible tools for educators in improving their practice.
Emdin is a social critic, public intellectual, and science advocate whose commentary on issues of race, culture, inequality, and education have appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post. He holds a Ph.D. in Urban Education from City University of New York and is an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics, Science, and Technology at Teachers College, Columbia University.
