Share Your Curricula
On October 15th this year, educators from across the city and curriculum development specialists from across the United States will gather to share curriculum resources at the NYC Social Justice Curriculum Fair. We are currently looking for educators and organizations to volunteer to share their social justice curriculum and coordinate outreach in specific grade/subject areas. If you’re interested in helping out, let us know with this form. Our goal is to elevate our practice as educators and strengthen social justice pedagogy by sharing curriculum and facilitating teacher-to-teacher collaboration. We invite educators to share teaching materials and practices related to racial justice, feminism, LGBTQ rights, labor, immigration, ecology, activism, and any other content focus or pedagogy that aims to advance social justice.
