Ta-Nehisi Coates Interview: Special Viewing on Wednesday, Dec. 2

On Wednesday, December 2, from 4-6 in the Family Room of the Student Center, a group of students and faculty will be watching Ta-Nehisi Coates’s interview at the Schomburg Center (October 22, 2015), followed by a discussion about his work. The faculty who will be joining have been reading Between the World and Me, which recently won the 2015 National Book Award for nonfiction, as part of the CTC Reading and Discussion Group. Students will include folks enrolled in SOCI 203: Race and Ethnicity, and OMS Social Justice Peer Educators, who have also read some or all of the book, as well as students from English classes who have been working with texts written by Coates. You, also, are invited. If you wish to come, please take some time to read the excerpt from the book that appeared in The Atlantic. Please e-mail to let us know if you plan to attend. We’ve ordered food, and we want to make sure we have enough.

Our Theme for 2015-16

Teaching, Learning and Racial Justice is our theme for this year. Specifically:

      • How can we, as a faculty, become more conscious of the cultural capital that students of color bring to the classroom?
      • How can we craft pedagogical practices that recognize, affirm, and build on the cultural capital of all students?
      • How might such intentional practice transform the learning of all of our students, and of us, as teachers, as well?

    The CTC welcomes roundtable sessions related to this theme, and non-related roundtables are welcome as well.

    Mentors & Partners Program

    We are excited to welcome four new full-time faculty to our ranks this year. The first priority for our Professional Development Mentors & Partners program is to fund a Mentorship for each new full-time faculty member.

    If you can think of something you’d like to talk over with other teachers…you’ve got a Roundtable. The CTC Board schedules three regular Roundtables every month: What's Working, Adjuncts Chat With the Dean, and Reading and Discussion Group. Other slots, Monday and Wednesday at noon, are available for any discussion you'd like to schedule. We’ll get the word out, host the session and collect feedback for you.
