Limited Capacity seats available

What are the causes and consequences of prejudice and injustice? This workshop will explore this driving question through a two pronged approach. Participants need to come ready to challenge their thinking, their teaching practices, and their learning cultures.

Each participant will be creating their own project based learning unit with this driving question as a focus while also learning how to eliminate these concepts along with inequity in their classrooms.

Come ready to share your expertise, be pushed to new levels of thought, and walk away with a project you can use in your classroom. 

More importantly this workshop will provide you with personalize conversations and feedback to ensure you get what you need to design a high quality learning experience for yourself and your students.
