Social justice is about recognizing and acting on the power we have for making positive change. By giving students opportunities for seeing how positive change happens and how they can be both designers and leaders in creating change, we raise students' awareness through empathy, giving them choice and voice to affect positive change in the world right now. Join us as we discuss social justice as a reflective best practice in teaching, supporting high-level thinking and learning, and helping students develop a mindset an openness that will help them be productive members of society. Let’s talk about how we make space in our classrooms for students to express their concerns and ask questions about our world. Our classroom walls shouldn’t be barriers to the realities outside of them.

 

Stay tuned for registrations in the Spring!
