This interactive session will highlight a summer professional learning course designed to prioritize social justice in the K-12 STEAM classroom. While most teachers held social justice orientations, Rightful Presence (Calabrese Barton & Tan, 2020), provided important connection to teaching practice.
Teachers in the course used reflection and robust discussion to examine and identify their educational bias, teaching philosophies, and socially just teaching practices in STEAM. This interactive session will share strategies and reflection practices for teachers to bring back to their classrooms.
