Teacher Toolkit


Developing children and adolescents into justice-oriented citizens will not happen by accident but through the dedicated work of individuals across the country. Educational stakeholders are often at the forefront of these efforts, working tirelessly to provide meaningful educational opportunities for K-12 students. We are supporting this work with professional development tools focused on equity, inclusion and justice. These tools include a resource guide that provides pertinent information on existing social justice curricula, transactive discussion activities, an inclusive language glossary, resources on race and teaching, and tips for creating a positive classroom climate. Ultimately, we hope educators can find tools within our wide range of materials that best meet their specific needs. This list is by no means exhaustive, and we plan to continuously update it with key and relevant resources. 


"The classroom, with all its limitations, remains a location of possibility.... We have the opportunity to labor for freedom, to demand of ourselves and our comrades, an openness of mind and heart that allows us to face reality even as we collectively imagine ways to move beyond boundaries, to transgress.
This is education as the practice of freedom."
