Bringing the Theory and Practice of Social Change into the Classroom

September 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

September 15th, 10 am -12 pm: Bringing the Theory and Practice of Social Change into the Classroom, with Pat Romano, Kim Simard, Sue Elmslie, Anick Legault and alumnae Miryam Guirguis (faculty professional development workshop).

Somewhere in a classroom where challenging topics are being addressed, there is a teacher navigating through the cynicism, resistance, and trauma with their students. How can we properly address sexism, racism, and/or painful histories/realities – covering the complexities and encouraging critical thought- without causing harm? This is the thorny garden the Resist Violence community of practice has been growing in. Through a presentation using a “performance art” style, research, and personal experiences, we hope to shed light on our pedagogical approach, the resources we have compiled and created, and engage in a conversation with all in attendance about the ways we can breakthrough silences, anger and denial using interdisciplinary approaches. Click Here to Register Room 3F.43. Please indicate on your registration if you are attending in-person or virtually.
