Event description

Description

How can we as educators strive to push ourselves beyond the comfort zones of our own disciplines? How do we use Social Justice as a theme to connect across disciplines? We often wonder how we can create curriculum that connects deeply with what's going on in other classes, as well as to what is happening outside of school. In this session participants will consider a middle school case study as a lens for how to develop interdisciplinary work with colleagues that is meaningful and strengthens their content area, through using social justice as the common lens. We will share our process of how we created interdisciplinary projects in our Spanish and Art classes and how we connected that with students' studies in Humanities. Participants will leave with ideas and some time to think about developing social justice focused interdisciplinary work as it connects to their own school settings. This workshop aims to encourage teachers to develop curriculum that is conducive to making connections across disciplines and actively approaching learning through relevant, engaging, yet rigorous projects that connect to social action.
