The Month of Courage: Teaching for Change
One of my favorite things about living in the NOVA/DC area is the bookstore Busboys and Poets. The bookstore is run by the staff of Teaching for Change, a non-profit devoted to providing "teachers and parents with the tools to transform schools into centers of justice where students learn to read, write, and change the world." Pretty exciting stuff.
Teaching for Change is a fanstastic resource whether you are a teacher or a parent unschooling, homeschooling or just encouraging your child to become a life-time learner. In honor of MLK and the fearless work he did, I am sharing the book Putting the Movement Back into Civil Rights Teaching with you today.
When I was teaching at a Friends school, I discovered this book; it's full of some very brave people and deserves to be read and used in every classroom.
