So many of the divisions and false notions of social order we cling to as adults are entrenched in the culture of public education. We want to take our next step in challenging that culture, and we ask for your help in helping us capture and share counter-narratives to today's test-addled, pop notions of schooling."

The first reading provides students with some historical context for the current unemployment crisis and describes the human impact of joblessness. The second reading looks at how government policies and proposals might affect the unemployment crisis. This includes a discussion of the budget deals negotiated between Democrats and Republicans this summer, as well as President Obama's proposed jobs program. The questions that follow the readings encourage students to think critically about the issue of unemployment and the government's responses, and to relate them to their own experiences. http://www.teachablemoment.org/high/joblessness.html

In fact, the United States boasts a long track record of actions against corporations and the government. Here are 11 of those uprisings that Occupy Wall Street protesters and everyone else seeking social change would do well to study. Each of these movements won lasting social change. Their failures and limitations provide lessons about what not to do, while their successes offer a guide to future action."http://www.alternet.org/story/152824/beyond_occupy_wall_street%3A_11_american_uprisings_you%27ve_never_heard_of_that_changed_the_world?page=entire

Drawing from years of experience and study, John Gastil offers a variety of solutions to the problems commonly faced by small, democratic groups. He thoroughly explores the dynamics of practicing democracy, including the relationship between speaking rights and listening responsibilities; the important of full access to information and agenda setting: and ways to practice democracy in personal, family and neighborhood life. Throughout, he enriches his suggestions with detailed descriptions of the dynamics within a cooperative grocery store. To help readers choose the democratic structure most appropriate to their group. Democracy in Small Groups: Participation, Decision-Making and Communication also surveys the full range of democratic processes, including consensus, majority rule, and proportional outcomes. -- Midwest Book Review --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

11/3/2011 15:46:21Lesson PlanSystems and issues this movement is protesting againstElementary School StudentsPercentages, Inequity, UnionsStudents asked what my BFT sticker "I'm one of the 99%" meant. With parent volunteers eagerly urging me onward, I asked students to define union and we reviewed it as a group of worker fighting to make things fairer in their workplace. To explain the 99% concept, I asked students to imagine throwing a pizza party with one pizza divided in 100 slices for 100 people, but the host took half for him/herself and the remaining 99% were left to fight over the other half. They got the concept of % easily, translating different percentages to fractions within minutes and were outraged at the inequity of the "party." I told them people in our society were striking because they felt that our society was just as unfair as this party. When we concluded the discussion, I reminded them that everything I said was just my opinion and that it, as well as my math could be wrong and to check with their parents. Most insisted I had to be right. This is when I said not everyone here necessarily believes this and even if they are just a few of us, under the ideal of American democracy, we had a responsibility to make these few students feel safe expressing their views. Even though my Berkeley Federation of Teachers contract grants me academic freedom, have to exercise caution, because in the past administrators have written me up with other pretexts for exercising this right or for publishing such work with my students! I'm scared of the repercussions for what I've said here. But I understand this time, besides my union, Occupy will also come to my defense if there is retaliation.No links.
