Applying Principles of Equity in K-12 Teaching: New Spring Course for Teachers

Make Your K-12 Teaching More Equitable

Applying Principles of Equity in K-12 Teaching

Sherita Love
(U82 4035)

This online course explores current theories shaping the way we think, teach and learn in K-12 settings. Participating students will examine the social construction of race, ethnicity, gender, social class and abilities, along with impacts on the educational and social experiences of K-12 students from historically marginalized backgrounds. We will consider how curriculum, instruction, and assessment might be re-designed with an applied equity lens. Projects will include the re-design of a curriculum unit in a current classroom and a final paper.
