  • Cultural Conflicts & Criminalization in the Classroom: Understanding and Dismantling the School to Prison Pipeline, with Joseph Mathews, Thursday, 12/1, 6-8pm


  • Drawing from his book, Things I Wish My Teacher Knew About Me, combined with his experience of being a disengaged student and his time in the juvenile justice system as a youth, Joseph and workshop participants will explore and identify common policies and practices that contribute to the School to Prison Pipe Line. Participants will also learn simple but critical approaches to dismantle the pipeline through interactive and collaborative role play as they work towards creating a more compassionate and responsive classroom culture.

    Joseph Mathews has conducted many professional development workshops for teachers that focus on student and family engagement. In addition to his newly published Things I Wish My Teacher Knew About Me (CreateSpace, May, 2015), he has written Wrestling for My Life (2011), Why Do Boys Make Girls Cry? (2011), Me and My Homies (2010), and The Dropout (2008). Joseph has a M.A. in Family and Community Education, and he is pursuing now a Ph.D in Interdisciplinary Studies, also at Teachers College, Columbia University.

    Please rsvp with your interest by Tuesday, 11/29.

    This workshop is part of Engaging the Disengaged Student Workshop Series, conducted by Joseph Mathews throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. Stay tuned for announcements of his next workshops.
