Race, Place, and Justice: Teaching About Redlining

Date: 5:00pm - 8:00pm PST November 5, 2013 Location: South Chapel, Graduate Campus

Our schools and classrooms are spaces where students rehearse the skills and strategies they need to lead successful lives. Why not create spaces for students to also rehearse the strategies they will need to take a stand for justice?

This workshop for 2nd-8th grade teachers, walks participants through one example of a rehearsal for justice. Participants will move through a model of how to create a play about housing rights, community organizing, and racial justiceeven in a 2nd grade classroom.

This workshop is part of our 2013-2014 Workshop Series
