September 30, 2016 at the Ramada Inn and Conference Center in Getzville
Having received his doctorate from the Urban Schooling Division at the University of California, Los Angeles, Dr. Hunter has spent over 17 years (and counting) working in urban communities, with students spanning the K through 20 schooling continuum. His teaching and scholarly interests explore the sociocultural dimensions of literacy learning, literacy pedagogy, and literacy education as they dis/mis/empower youth, their teachers, and families in urban environments. He pays particular attention to the ways culture, history, and language intersect with literacy and technology and the implications of this work on social justice, diversity, schooling equity, access, and excellence. Dr. Hunter presents widely at conferences and maintains an active publication agenda that serves to highlight the efforts of educators, of educators-to-be, and youth working in city neighborhoods within Western New York and beyond.
The Art of Eliciting Students’ Ideas about Science
Several science probes will be modeled that teachers can use to uncover their students’ thinking about science concepts. The pedagogical importance of eliciting students’ ideas as the first phase of a learning cycyle will be discussed.
