Andy Hargreaves: Teaching and Learning with Equity in the Pandemic
In his book Andy reflects:
Social mobility is about families who seek better lives for their children, … Social mobility needs grit, determination, and resiliency in the struggle to succeed. It often needs ingenuity and stubborn defiance to work around and against the system as well. (Moving, A Memoir of Education and Mobility, 2020 Solution Tree Press: page 168)
- Through the author’s research and firsthand account, learn how the issues surrounding mobility, equity, and education in the 20th century are still reflected in 21st-century life.
- Understand the obstacles of socially mobile students as they negotiate schoolwork, poverty, cultural collisions, and personal hardship.
- Make the connections to Hargreaves’s experiences of testing, selection, ADHD, inspiring and uninspiring teaching, whole-child inclusion, and elitist exclusion that are still alive and well in education today.
