This course will allow participants to examine how they approach social justice and equity in their curriculum development, pedagogy, and practices. We will discover how to create learning environments that provide full cultural, social, political (and other) access to and for all members. How do we as educators create equitable learning environments? Who do our policies exclude and/or who do they disenfranchise, and what can we do to change that? How do we connect the curriculum to learning environments that are equitable and just? What does that even mean, and why is it important to us as educators, and to our community and world? Come prepared to examine old assumptions, explore your own relationship with bias, develop new ways to approach equity, and grapple with the essential, personal, potentially uncomfortable process of cognitive dissonance. All students-and the community-will benefit from the new approaches you implement in your classrooms and schools.
