Equity Film Series

Episode 3 screenshot.png

Equity is achieved when student success is no longer predicted based on race, ethnicity, family economics, mobility, language, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability or initial proficiencies. In Beaverton, we reach our equity goal when all students graduate College and Career Ready and possess the knowledge, skills and behaviors necessary to enroll and succeed in credit-bearing, first-year courses at a postsecondary institution without the need for remediation. The path to equity and excellence begins in the classrooms.

The Equity Film Series focuses on 10 High Leverage Practices that are research-based, concrete and measurable. When using them becomes second nature as teachers think, plan, and teach, achieving equity and excellence becomes a reality. They are also directly connected to the 5 Dimensions of Teaching & Learning Framework, as indicated by the key(s) appearing after each practice. These practices are not independent of each other; rather they complement, depend and build upon one another. Focus on one practice at a time within a specific timeframe in a given school year, and by the end of the year, the accumulative effect will have a sustainable impact, resulting in increased student learning.  

Additional culturally relevant teaching resources to accompany the  Embracing Equity Film Series  can be found on TeacherSource.
