Study Groups & Events, 2016-2017

R&R: Reading and Reflection  

T4SJ hosts a series of one night discussions. Come to one, come to a couple, or become a regular. We’ll have dinner, drinks and time to talk. Discussion will be based on a scholarly or timely article concerning social justice or critical pedagogy. Though the article will be available beforehand, we’ll have a short chance to read and a longer opportunity to talk as we construct deeper insights and connections to our work.  People of color encouraged to attend.

New folks always welcomed. TO RSVP click on the date

Book Club – (SF)2016-17 RSVP 

Teachers in this group will use literature and the discussions of this literature as a basis for rethinking their actions in the classroom. Teachers will alternate reading Young Adult fiction and scholarly non-fiction. We will gather to hold a structured discussion using a protocol that allows every voice to be heard and every topic or question a participant brings to be examined. As an educator book club, we’ll make what could be difficult to do solo engaging, collaborative, reflective and fun.  Space is limited, people of color encouraged to apply.
