Course 6: Social Justice Education for Change Agents (formerly Social Justice Education for EL Leaders)
I love all of these resources! I frequently think about the concept of Identity as central to student learning and engagement. Even from a child development perspective, we know that our youngest students are, by nature, self-centered, and become more aware of others and the world around them as they get older. By the time they are teens, students are by nature self-conscious and concerned with the way they are seen by others. So, from a strictly instructional perspective, we can increase student achievement by engaging students deeply in content that is relevant to their lives. And from a social justice perspective, we must be concerned with the implications of our curriculum choices on student identity. --Sarah Callejo, Principal
This course resonated with multiple facets of my work. In working with a team to redesign our New Teacher Program, I see a clear connecting to the Instruction and Classroom Culture. In order to set new teachers up to be successful with their students we need to be able to provide a supportive coaching environment which focuses on these areas. --Michelle Herman, Director of Teacher/Leader Development
