Social Justice Resources
Becoming a social justice educator is a continual process of reflection--both inward and outward--and action. Teaching for social justice requires not only a deep understanding of content and best practices in instruction but also courage, heart, passion, and relentless determination. To me, creating a classroom culture that is inclusive as well as one that critically analyzes inequities in society is part of being a social justice educator.
Pillars of social justice education include creating a classroom community centered on student voice and choice, connecting (personally and professionally) to students' lives, linking content to authentic problems, analyzing issues from multiple perspectives, and actively addressing issues of inequity and oppression in school and society.
