Teacher as Activist, Charlotte Vinson

Charlotte Vinson, a graduate of Teachers College Inclusive Education Program and Middle Teacher at The Young Women’s Leadership Academy in the Bronx, demonstrates model inclusive pedagogies in her work.

Here, she explains multiple ways inclusive educators can operate through her own examples, including positioning oneself as an activist educator and offering students opportunities to reposition their power by planning curriculum that not only honors all different types of learning through multimodal projects, but also by exploring societal power structures through anti-oppressive education; examining who’s included and who’s not within the master narrative/single story.
