What’s A Study Group? What’s a Justice Salon?
Study Groups are peer-based professional development opportunities made for and lead by teachers. Justice Salons are a small group of educators coming together to discuss a topic.
What Do Study Groups & Justice Salons Focus On?
The topics are tied to existing classroom practice, instead of one-shot “training” workshops that happen in isolation. Curriculum is built around investigation of a specific topic through research and personal experience. In a Justice Salon the conversation centers around a shared text, media or experience which provides the basis for the discussion.
How Often Do They Meet?
Study Groups meet for seven sessions or more, starting in November in the evenings. Justice Salons happen periodically throughout the year, each Salon is different and participants must RSVP to each one. Dinner is included for each meeting.
