These materials were created to be facilitated as a part of semester-long Learning Communities. While we do not formally run these programs anymore, we are happy to support groups who would like to explore the materials together. The Teaching for Social Justice track will explore the ways in which educators (of all levels and disciplines) can further social justice through their interactions. Utilizing social justice teaching frameworks, exploration of individual social location, and fostering social consciousness in learners, this learning community is meant to support educators who want to think about how they can foster social justice. Participants will create an activity that students will do to learn about the importance of social justice in the course discipline and how that relates to the partner’s mission.
- These folders include discussion guides, readings, worksheets, and other resources regarding developing meaningful partnerships with community members and partners, its effect on social justice, and understanding one’s social location.
