Teaching in Solidarity Monthly Conversation on Zoom!
Monthly on the 3rd Thursdays @6pm EST
In 2020/21 Spark led Teaching in Solidarity w/ Black Lives professional development sessions for over 100 educators. We have continued our learning together through monthly discussions for the past year. Teaching in Solidarity is a practice of understanding our ideas and interrogating pedagogies in order to work for a more just world. In these sessions we will support, collaborate and enrich our teaching curriculum and skills. In the coming months we will discuss:
- Ideas of why people are poor
- The demonization/pathologization of the poor
- The relationship between wealth and poverty
- And analyze the ideas that children are taught in schools
We hope that you will join the Spark community for these vital conversations, which are driven by the interests and experiences of the group. Please fill out this form if you are interested in receiving updates in the future for Teaching in Solidarity Continuing PD to receive readings and zoom information.
