2015 Application to the Reading Just the Word ... It Ain't Enough!

Welcome!
Join us for a 2-day institute on social justice curricula design and critical participatory action research.

Reading just the word de-emphasizes students' worlds and obstructs their making sense of the word. Teachers and curriculum developers know that deep reading and analytic writing are effective when students use their experiences, the experiences of others, and other texts to make meaning and see their worlds in the words read and written.

This interactive two-day workshop for middle and secondary educators, teacher education faculty, critical education researchers and community youth development activists interested in critical literacies will generate:
- Working definitions of social justice as they relate to the classroom
- A social justice framework for curriculum development and year-long course planning
- Ways to enrich text with art, music, dance, and research
- An understanding of how to approach content critically by questioning assertions
- A curriculum framework that empowers young people to read the word and their world

When: June 29 - 30
Where: The Graduate Center, City University of New York, 365 5th Ave, New York, NY 10016
With: Michelle Fine, Bernadette Anand, Rajive Anand, Gail Cruise-Roberson, and Carlton Jordan
Fee: $350
