Coming of Age, Identity in Community, and Taking Action in the World. Student work exemplars will be featured and explored in the workshop. This exciting, collaborative work is part of LCE’s intensive partnership with New Visions Charter High School Network, whose underlying mission is “to radically disrupt poverty.” LCE’s foundational Capacities for Imaginative Thinking, Notice Deeply, Pose Questions, and Make Connections, are woven into mission of the network and used daily in the classroom as habits of mind to support growth, change, and social justice.
