A Joint Publication with NWEA, A Joint Publication with Learning Forward



September 2023 | 200 pages | Corwin

Create space for equity conversations that empower

Equity work is not a destination, but a journey. Equity work is nuanced and often difficult to discuss. In The Equity Expression, Hubbard creates space for equity conversations and empowers practitioners to be equity change agents.

Built around the framework of six entry points—systems, mindsets, relationships, products, spaces, and processes—this guide serves as a tool for deliberate and productive planning for equitable change. Reaching into the deepest layers of self to identify personal beliefs, practitioners can use this book to tackle hard truths and challenge themselves to do better. This book provides a fresh take on dissecting equity with a lens to positively impact all students, including

  • Concrete sequential steps to work towards solutions
  • A set of tools to identify problems of practice and establish implementation plans through the six entry points for equity
  • Reflection questions to help educators turn findings into actionable plans

For those committed to helping students succeed, the steps outlined in this book provide meaningful solutions to embed equity into every learning culture.

About the Author

"This is my first experience with an author who is thinking about equity through a lens to positively impact all students. It is a book for practitioners willing to tackle hard truths through reflective exercises that allow participants to reach into their deepest layers of self to identify what they believe, why they believe it, and what can be done; so they can work strategically towards a uniform solution. Readers will be captivated by the non-threatening way in which the author challenges all of us to look at ourselves and to do better, while offering a set of tools to identify problems of practice as well as creating strong implementation plans through the six entry points for equity. Practitioners, leaders, and adults committed to helping students will be interested in this book, as it puts the onus of learning on educators while also providing concrete sequential steps needed to work towards meaningful solutions. and ultimately to embed equity into every learning culture."

"The Equity Expression is a must read for those looking for a resource to help shift your equity work from “theory” to action. Hubbard provides a rich set of tools that allows educators at any point on their journey to reflect and transform mindsets and relationships in order to address inequities and change the narrative for our students."
