Inclusive Curriculum Design
Date: December 3 5:00pm - 8:00pm Location: Graduate Campus
Students who learn to value, protect, and respect one another’s’ rights grow into citizens who know how to work together as local, State, and National leaders. To this end, we need classroom-ready curriculum that affirms everyone in our classrooms. Yet how do we do this, and do it well?
Participants in this workshop will explore The Oregon Tribal Histories & Sovereignty Curriculum Design Project as a model for inclusive curricula design focused upon learner outcomes, including:
- Civic awareness and inclusiveness
- Increased affect on relationships across perceived differences
- Positive self-conceptions, and
- Group abilities
This workshop will provide counselors, educators, and administrators with skills to address and explore issues of inequity in the classroom and school in a way that works toward inclusiveness and away from objectification and alienation.
Content emphasis is focused on how to create and influence inclusive curriculum design and the role of education in forming norms of respect for differences. Workshop content is relevant to community members and/or activists, as well as counselors and educators.
This workshop is part of our 2013-2014 Workshop Series
