Designing Social Justice Lessons

Monday August 3, 2020 at 11:00 am CST

In this presentation, participants will learn how to create lessons which help students to recognize social injustice. Using the framework provided, teachers will be able to guide students in social justice projects while linking their students’ learning to curricular standards. A framework is presented to create lessons plans which: help students to empathize with marginalized groups, realize the injustices these groups face, and synthesize a plan of action to level social justice. Finally, students will start to generalize their learning to modern day injustices that are happening in their communities. Ideas for projects will be presented for popular curricular topics. Time will be provided for questions and collaborations. (This is a one hour class/ cost is $5).
