Teachers today want to address social justice issues like racism, sexism, homophobia, and other harmful forms of discrimination with their students, but they may not be sure where to start. TeachKind’s free social justice curriculum, Challenging Assumptions, is the answer. Join us and the United Federation of Teachers – Humane Education Committee on Saturday, July 24, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. ET for a free virtual training session on using this new and exciting resource to educate and empower students in grades 9–12 to challenge societal norms and inspire compassion and empathy toward others, regardless of species, race, gender, sexual identity, age, or ability.
Challenging Assumptions provides high school teachers with step-by-step guidelines, thought-provoking lesson plans, and inspiring videos that make discussing social justice issues with students easier and more effective. In this free training session, a panel of experienced educators will share their tips for integrating animal rights topics into the curriculum as a means of assisting learners in thinking critically about the oppression of other marginalized groups and examining our shared privilege as humans. All participants will receive a free copy of Challenging Assumptions and a free TeachKind swag bundle.
To sign up for this free event, e-mail us at [email protected]—we’ll send you an exclusive Zoom link the day before. Can’t make it? Order a free copy of Challenging Assumptions, and sign up for TeachKind E-News to find out when our next training session will be.
