Workshops will be allotted a 75-minute time slot. Priority will be given to workshops that fall in one or more of the following:* K-12, community-college, and adult-education educators, * those who work/organize around issues of education justice, * workshops that address this year’s theme: "From Puerto Rico to Chicago: Reclaiming and Reimagining Our Communities" and * that address TSJ's political goals (see http://www.teachersforjustice.org/2007/09/about-tsj.html and scroll down for TSJ "political goals").
In addition, we are open to having workshop presenters designate workshops for people of specific race, gender, or other category (e.g., a workshop by youth for youth; teachers of color for teachers of color; whites for whites to deal with questions of white supremacy/privilege, etc.). If that is your intent, please explain your reasons clearly in the very last question below, "Anything Else We Should Know?"
We encourage facilitators to co-present with their students or with whomever they work, and workshops should be experiential and interactive. The TSJ Workshops Committee, in consultation as needed with other members of the TSJ leadership group, will determine which proposed workshops will be accepted for the Fair, as we only have time and space for a limited number. You will be contacted about that decision by November 4. Thank you so much for submitting!
