What is a Social Justice Education Anyways?

These are two tools (TT Toolkit_Shifting Out_Critical Literacy for Historical Thinking) that we are currently using as we audit our resources. We are having teachers start “small” with their annual reads. So, for example if G4 has 4 books they use for lit circles – we are starting with those vs. tackling the entire classroom library.
In addition to this – we’re having teachers begin to use the anti-bias framework as a lens to review currently existing units (mainly social studies). They are starting by writing 4 essential questions for each unit that connect with the domains – identity, diversity, justice, action.
All of this work is taking place during full faculty meetings – so we are building in time for teams to work on these things. We all start together and frame the meeting in terms of what we want them to accomplish. Then they break off, do the work and come back to share out at the end of meeting. For example, we had each team bring a book to audit. At another meeting, we had teams bring a unit to work on essential questions for.
