Susan Goodwin is the Director of the Rochester Teachers Center. Her work focuses on emancipatory curriculum and culturally connected teaching and learning. The discussion is based on the question of "What is the relationship between curriculum and consciousness?" "How is white supremacy taught and left uninterrogated in school curriculum by teachers, parents, and community?" Participants look at the methodologies consistently employed in the marginalization of people of African ancestry in foundational K-12 curricular frameworks. Understanding the methodologies and instructional pedagogies used in the misrepresentation of white and Black identity is prerequisite for interrupting and reconstructing school presentations of knowledge. Dr. Goodwin has written Teaching Children of Color, Seven Constructs of Effective Teaching in Urban Schools, and Document Based Learning: Curriculum and Assessment. Considered one of the most authoritative cultural educators Dr. Goodwin has trained over a thousand teachers at her conferences in Rochester.
