Anchin Center partners with the Pinellas County Schools Office of Inclusion and Innovation to host An Introduction to Textured Teaching workshop

Introduction to Textured Teaching Workshop

February 23, 2022

In this hands-on workshop, district employees and educators learned about the four traits of Textured Teaching and how to think of your subject area through this framework.  

Participants brainstormed ideas with other educators and planned for some upcoming lessons and units.  Just under 100 participants joined together in Pinellas County to learn from facilitator Lorena Germán.

Lorena Germán is a two-time nationally awarded Dominican American educator focused on anti-racist and anti-bias education. She’s been featured in the New York Times, NPR, PBS, Rethinking Schools, EdWeek, Learning for Justice Magazine, and more. She published The Anti Racist Teacher: Reading Instruction Workbook, and her next book “Textured Teaching: A Framework for Culturally Sustaining Practices” (Heinemann, 2021) is about curriculum & lesson development focused on social justice. She’s a co-founder of #DisruptTexts and Multicultural Classroom. Lorena is also the Chair of NCTE’s Committee Against Racism and Bias in the Teaching of English. She lives in Tampa, Florida where she is a mami and wife—two of her most important roles.
