Sociologist and New York University Professor Dr. Pedro Noguera will be visiting the Syracuse City School District to speak with educators about creating conditions for teaching and learning.
Author of several books, including City Schools and the American Dream and Unfinished Business: Closing the Achievement Gap in Our Nation’s Schools, Dr. Noguera leads the team that has been facilitating the SCSD Culturally Responsive Education Institutes. His professional work focuses on the ways social and economic conditions can obstruct and promote student achievement.
Noguera’s remarks are part of the district’s efforts to develop an infrastructure to support student success and build a culture based on high expectations, respect and co-accountability for performance. Dr. Noguera will address supporting strategies for effective teaching in classrooms, creating strategies for a positive school culture and increasing strategies for student engagement in school.
Dr. Pedro Noguera will make his remarks at H.W. Smith School (1130 Salt Springs Road) on Monday, May 4th at 5:00 PM. Dr. Noguera’s presentation will be preceded by a meet and greet hosted by the Syracuse Teachers Association from 4:00 – 4:45 PM.
