About the Course

Justice Seekers: Pursuing Equity in the Details of Teaching and Learning is a book study that uses storytelling and research to explain why justice is something that is happening―or not happening―inside the classroom and within the details of teaching and learning. You will explore ways to identify and eliminate the shame-inducing pedagogies impacting Black and Latino children from classrooms and the world at large.

In the book, you’ll discover the many ways that justice is in the details of race, pedagogy, and standards-driven education, as well as:

  • Strategies for challenging educators to see the ways in which they can contribute to eradicating racial inequity from the classroom and from society.
  • New ways to recognize and reduce the impact of low cognitive demand material presented to Black and Latino children in schools across America.
  • Methods for improving the quality of your own teaching here and now.

This course is appropriate for all grades K-12 teachers, instructional coaches, teacher librarians and administrators.  This is for anyone who is interested in working to reverse the racial injustices today's children face every day.
