Social Justice Teaching Resources
Resources for Teachers
We hope to continually develop this "teachers resources" section. Eventually there will be materials for higher education and K-12. Teachers working in the K-12 continuum should benefit in their work on racism, sexism, class, and homophobia, as well as the forces that affect the communities children come from (such as welfare issues, health, the criminalization of youth, and history). Another section on human rights, community activism, and the law could benefit those doing legal work in the neighborhoods, or dealing with issues of poverty, crime, and the environment. Send us your ideas.
