The COE Fall Forum will take place on Wednesday, October 28th from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Lincoln Park Student Center Room 314 AB.
The tentative title is: CURRICULUM THAT MATTERS: GROUNDED IN OUR STUDENTS’ LIVES AND THEIR COMMUNITIES
While still in the planning stages, a panel of educators will address the following questions as well as offer examples of exemplary curriculum and the pedagogy that promotes student engagement and voice:
- How can DePaul’s Vincentian values of social justice, promoting social and ethical values, and civic engagement be actualized in K-12 curriculum?
- How can teachers develop student-centered, culturally responsive, and humanistic teaching approaches that are grounded in students’ lives and their communities?
There will be resource tables that attendees can visit before and after the forum where sample curricula and other resources will be available. Included among the groups that will offer resources are the Mikva Challenge, Facing History, The Chicago Grassroots Curriculum group, Teachers for Social Justice, the Zinn Project and Teaching for Change.
More information will be forthcoming.
