Presentation Title: Where do we go from here? A Framework for Multicultural Teaching in Texas Amidst the Restrictive Education Movement

PRESENTER: Dr. Marlon C. James - Assistant Dean for Student Success and Associate Professor, Prairie View A&M University
  • Despite the movement to restrict progressive education, research links multicultural teaching to heightened educational outcomes among diverse learners.  In this address Dr. James will unpack the American Is Me (A.I.M.) framework designed specifically for advancing multicultural teaching in states that restrict DEI.  The AIM framework features six intercultural skills for promoting rigorous and culturally responsive teaching across grade levels and subject matters.   Dr. James will synthesize the latest research in support of multicultural education while detailing several AIM model lessons featured in the We All Belong – School Resource Hub sponsored by the Intercultural Development Research Association.  Dr. James will conclude with strategies for refocusing our collective commitment to equity and justice in education. 
  • Dr. James is the Assistant Dean for Student Success for the Brailsford College of Arts and Sciences (BCAS) and an Associate Professor in Sociology at Prairie View A&M University.  As an assistant professor at Texas A&M University, Dr. James served as the Executive Director of the Center for Urban School Partnerships, the Program Chair for Urban Education, and the Chair of the Carter and Larke Lecture Series for Black History in Education.
