Responding to Learner Diversity and Difficulties
CALL FOR CHAPTERSBy:
Dennis Conrad, SUNY Potsdam
Stacey Blackman, University of the West Indies
A volume in the series: Caribbean Discourse in Inclusive Education
Editors: Stacey Blackman, University of the West Indies and Dennis Conrad, SUNY Potsdam
The second volume in the Caribbean Discourse in Education Book Series “Responding to Learner Diversity and Difficulties” invites critical reflection on the way schools and educational institutions, in general, respond to learner diversity and difficulties students experience with learning in 21st Century classrooms. The issue of how education and schools can respond to learner diversity and difference is complicated given that it encompasses a whole range of factors that include but not limited to: the student's age, ability and academic performance, culture, disability status, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio‐economics status, and urban‐rural differences. We invite chapters that offer a critical analysis and/or recommendations of how educational institutions in the Caribbean, the Diaspora, and other international contexts meet the challenges associated with diverse needs and learning communities. Contributions can be theoretical, empirical, cross‐cultural, interdisciplinary, discursive, quantitative, or qualitative in nature.
We invite Chapters on the following areas
1. Educational Assessment and Research‐based Interventions
2. Education for Social Justice and Peace
3. Responding to Learning Difficulties
4. Collaborative Partnerships and Approaches that work
5. Leadership for Inclusive Education
6. Meeting the Needs of Students‐at‐Risk
7. Reducing Exclusionary Practices in Education
8. Responsive Curriculum and Pedagogy
9. Supporting Student Diversity and Learning Difficulty
10. Using Technology to Engage All Learners
11. Teacher Education – Models and Innovations for Diverse Classrooms
Both abstract and full papers on any area outlined above can be submitted for consideration. These should be original and not under review by any journal or conference review panel.
Manuscripts should be 25‐35 pages [US letter] in length and should not exceed 7,500 words, excluding references and submitted in Times New Roman 12, double spaced. All manuscripts should conform to American Psychological Association Style (APA) including any tables, figures, and Artwork. We also ask that authors have their final chapters professionally proof‐read to avoid delays in the publishing process. A list of approved proof readers and services will be available from the Editors on request.

This is a friendly reminder that the deadline for the 14TH INTER-AMERICAN SYMPOSIUM ON ETHNOGRAPHY AND EDUCATION is .
The symposium this time will take place in both Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico, and El Paso, Texas. It was extremely important to have a venue on both sides of the border, in order to make sure that scholars who may not be able to come to El Paso may participate. We will have streaming of key presentations on both locations in order to facilitate participation for most of the event, even if participants cannot or decide not to cross to either side.
The co-organizers believe that more than ever it is important to create spaces to better understand the theme of this 14th symposium "Crossing Borders".
We are thrilled to have excellent keynote speakers whose work is highly influential across the Americas:
WALTER D. MIGNOLO
MARJORIE FAULSTICH ORELLANA
University of California, Los Angeles
ANA MARIA RABELO GOMES
Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil
Scholars will come to discuss their work from many diverse countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Canada, Spain, and Mexico. From Mexico, we have participants from Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Navojoa, Sonora, Oaxaca, and Mexico City.
We are also featuring panels with teacher researches from the border region and Mexico!
Proposals (individual papers and panels) are due on .

Here is the event website: https://coe.csusb.
LEAD Summit VIII will be webcast live from the campus of Cal State San Bernardino - Santos Manuel Student Union Event Center, which means it can be viewed via the internet, in real time, but will also be available after the fact with the on-demand function. One goes to the URL web address, and you and any of your members watch the summit from your location. Enjoy and engage in the segments, including the "red carpet" interviews. The webcast includes "chat" functions so that you may participate by posing questions remotely, as well.
The URL / Webcast link will be posted on the event website in a few days from today.
There is no need for full video conferencing capability nor a user ID or password, and neither is a fee involved; just your collaboration to make the event as successful as possible. This reflects your institution's commitment to enriching diversity and addressing the Latino educational crisis, and see this program as an important resource.
Many of you have participated in past years, and if so, we already may have your institution, business, organization, or school/class listed.
