Brief Program Description

In this engaging hands-on presentation, Keith L. Brown, challenges the paradigm as it relates to the widely known and accepted idea of the “Hidden Curriculum,” which in essence refers to the unwritten, unofficial and often unintended lessons, values and perspectives that students of color in particular and many others in general learn in school. Using group collaboration and team building, Keith illustrates how the physical, mental, emotional and cultural make-up of individuals can be altered to close not only the “achievement gap” but the “ambition gap” as well. He also presents real life examples to further highlight why youth advocates must remove societal blinders and enhance Service, Equity, Expectations and Knowledge (SEEK) in all students, especially those cast away due to their “at-risk” status.
