Reviews

Tasha Waldron
I highly recomment this course. The content was engaging and relevant. This course made me think deeply about social justice issues and gave me tools to not only examine my own biases, but examine and interrupt injustices that I observe within my school and my community.
thomas brickey
The class had many useful ideas to include in my planning for next year.
Rebecca MacVaugh
This content was interesting and engaging. I felt the case-study approach made this class relevant and I appreciated the variety of mediums that the content was present (videos, podcasts, articles, etc.). The instructor gave thoughtful feedback and showed a passion for the topic as well!
