UOTeach Equity & Social Justice Teach-IN Program

Hello social justice educators,

On December 2, 2017 UOTeach will hold our second annual TEACH-IN. 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.

We have prepared a draft proposal worksheet to help you prepare your session submission. Once you have decided on what you would like to share in a session, please submit an online Teach-IN proposal submission form for the December 2, 2017.

You will need to indicate your instruction grade-level, subject area focus, and social justice keywords for your proposal. The submission system will allow us to create an inclusive program for the event.

It is our hope that through TeachIN you 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. Thank you in advance for supporting UOTeach students entering the field of teaching.

Julia Heffernan, Ph.D. Graduate Director of UOTeach

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
