Pathways to Teaching – Freedom Schools Literacy Academy

Posted by The Center for Black Educator Development on March 10, 2020

The Center for Black Educator Development is looking to hire 25 Black/Latinx college and 40 high school students for a teacher pre-apprenticeship this summer. The Center’s FREEDOM SCHOOLS LITERACY ACADEMY is a dynamic eight-week summer program for Black families with rising 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders, and promising high schoolers and college students.

Based on the Children’s Defense Fund’s 25-year-old respected national program, our Freedom Schools Literacy Academy integrates a culturally-responsive, affirming and sustaining early literacy curriculum developed by University of Michigan Professor Dr. Nell Duke, a widely respected researcher and innovator.

High school and college apprentices participate in an intensive training, then attend daily workshops led by a Literacy Coach, to develop their facilitation and instructional skills and increase their familiarity with the curriculum. Training topics include the latest on child development as well as how-to’s on lesson planning, team teaching, team building, and positive conflict resolution.
