UOTeach Equity & Social Justice Teach-IN Program

Dear Social Justice Educators,

The 2018 TeachIN is scheduled for November 17. This one-day event is a collaboration with UOTeach, district equity partners, and the ODE Equity Unit in which K-12 teachers share resources, practices, and examples from their everyday work to bring together the best of culturally sustaining instructional theories and everyday classroom teacher practice.

It is our hope that through TeachIN teachers will connect with your social justice teaching colleagues and expand your network of collaborators. Thank you for your dedication to your students and to teaching as a practice of freedom.

This is also the ten year anniversary of UOTeach, as such, we plan to bring back many of our alumni for a special event.

Thank you in advance for supporting UOTeach students entering the field of teaching.

Julia Heffernan, Ph.D. Graduate Director of UOTeach/TeachIN Coordinator

Workshops are designed to share resources, practices, demonstrations, and examples from your work to bring together the best of culturally sustaining instructional theories and everyday classroom teacher practice centered on equity, hope, and social justice.

Participant Responses
  • I just wanted to say that I was so inspired from the Social Justice Teach-In. Thank you so much for making this happen. All the workshop that I participated were exactly what I needed to get through at school, and I was so grateful and hopeful that I can go back to school with valuable resources. Thanks again. It also gave me a sort of homecoming feeling to see your familiar faces. I felt proud and honored to come back and see that UO Teach is moving forward with more striving forces. ~ Noriko Divers
