This week’s parent guest is Tricia Ebarvia, a high school English teacher and a mom of three boys who is one of the four co-founders of the #DisruptTexts movement - a “crowdsourced, grass roots effort by teachers for teachers to diversify literature taught in schools in order to create a more inclusive, representative, and equitable language arts curriculum” (Disrupt Texts website).
In this episode, we explore what the Disrupt Text collective is really about, clearing up misunderstandings and misinformation about the movement to highlight why this work is so necessary. We also provide parents with tangible steps on how to support their children and teachers in this work.
