How do we reach and teach the “cool kids” so that they have an equal shot at their potential? Using current research and provocative examples, Colin Seale, the founder of thinkLaw, engages course participants in a meaningful discussion about how social pressure affects student achievement — especially for students of color.
In this course, Mr. Seale moves the conversation toward practical solutions, focusing on three main strategies for addressing this critical issue:
- Using active engagement to fight against gaps in social capital
- Shifting the culture by bridging the gaps for students and their families
- Laying out the rules of the game and helping students see their unique contributions to the world
According to Mr. Seale, when it comes to opportunities for our “cool kids,” it’s all about designing spaces that tap into the things that move them. He challenges course participants to make sure opportunities like this aren’t limited to a select few while providing the strategies necessary to make it possible to answer the call.
