Roundtable series provides educators tools for classroom success, highlights men of color in field


MARYLAND – Educators will now get some tools and strategies to better serve their students in the classroom.

The UMES’ Men of Color in Education Program is hosting the Pedagogy From The 2 Percent virtual roundtable series that highlights the expertise of men of color in the field of education.

Once a month for the fall semester, the event looks to open up the conversation on how to better support teachers.

The first session is on classroom management and social and emotional learning.

We caught up with UMES Hazel Professor Dr. Richard Warren on what attendees can expect. “These resources such as classroom management. What does that look like? What are some new ideas? How can I make sure that I run my classroom effectively so that the environment is conducive to learning? Also, social and emotional learning. What do I do with these emotional needs with my students? How do I help them self regulate?” Dr. Warren said.

“The earlier we start giving them these tools and hear these insights, the better they will be when it comes to being in the classroom and navigating the whole idea of surviving and thriving.”

The first session of the series is scheduled for Thursday, September 29th from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
