URGENT: Calling all educators to "Teach Troy" in your classroom this week!

September 12, 2011 Leave a Comment

Georgia Death Row prisoner Troy Davis is scheduled to be executed on Wednesday, September 21 despite overwhelming doubts about his guilt. In light of this imminent execution date, EDUCATORS FOR TROY—a Chicago-based ad hoc group of educators, activists and artists—is calling on all educators to interrupt their regular teaching schedules this week to dedicate a class period to “TEACH TROY.”

Please use this emergency “Teach Troy” curriculum available on our new "Teach Troy" blog <http://troydaviseducation.wordpress.com/> at http://troydaviseducation.wordpress.com/

The blog provides: 1) links to readings and videos about the case of Troy Davis; 2) suggestions for student projects and assignments; and 3) links to simple, independent actions that students can take to help save Troy’s life.

Educators and students can share their experiences on the Feedback page of the “Teach Troy” blog and/or e-mail their work to troydaviseducation@gmail.com to be added to an archive of all contributions received.
