How Does the Work of Teaching Become the Work of Justice and Equity?


How do we advance social justice through the professional preparation and continuing education of teachers? What capabilities are required for competent beginning teaching that enable teachers to contribute to a better world through their work with young people? In this forum organized by TeachingWorks, panelists will bring their perspectives to bear on these themes by focusing on three “high-leverage practices” of teaching identified by TeachingWorks: (1) building respectful relationships with young people, (2) leading a group discussion, and (3) implementing norms and routines for classroom discourse and work.
