Having the responsibility of being a role-model in one’s classroom is not for the faint of heart. Students today arrive with confused notions and beliefs that are anything but neutralized. Acknowledging differences in viewpoints and establishing a classroom procedure and repertoire helps students make sense of democratic values and focus on civic responsibility and critical thinking skills. In this course, teachers will learn to address and navigate students’ relationship with the world. They will develop lessons that engage their learners and direct them with critical thinking skills and help them to make sense of the world we live in. A social justice perspective will be covered as well as societal misinformation, animosity, and racism.

A Must for all K-12 educators!!!!
