Narrative's Power to Improve Equity

Stories do more than entertain us. They connect us, giving us space to explore new ideas and understand different perspectives.

Narrative is a powerful force for equity in education. By giving students a chance to see themselves in their learning experiences, stories have the potential to make learning relevant for students from underserved social groups.

This session discusses how storytelling can improve equity by motivating all students to reach their potential.
