After completing this course, I believe the optimum way to close the equity opportunity gap is for stakeholders in the school building, community, along with business and industry to perform equity audits and use data as a measurement. Equity audits will show opportunities to improve the culture, students' grades, and community, which will display any deficiency. Dr. Terrance Green stated, "It's not enough just to critique and oppose but one also needs to create and propose." I created an action plan to assist those who need to overcome any barriers when it comes to equity in education. In my reflections from, Dr. Brandi Hinnant Crawford, PHD- "Cultivating Relevant Responsive Sustaining Classroom to Ensure Opportunities to Learn book, she stated, "Good pedagogy (edification, guidance, indoctrination, instruction) can decrease opportunity gaps." We can close any opportunity gap when lesson plans are strategically implemented with all students in mind. I encourage all educators to invest in themselves and sign up for this course.
Ms. Grimmett has some fun with the AIG at PES!
