Learning for Justice
WHAT IS IT
Learning for Justice provides supplemental curriculum materials to help teachers, administrators, counselors, and other educational professionals inform their practices and create inclusive school communities based on mutual respect with students. The curriculum-building resources encourage project-based learning, promote critical thinking skills, and offer options for customization. The materials, which include articles, lesson plans, and more, emphasize social justice and anti-bias. Learning for Justice also provides professional development to support educators implementing new practices and curriculum in their classrooms.
