2012 TSJ Curriculum Fair Program & Speakers

November 12, 2012 Leave a Comment

The 2012 Teaching For Social Justice Curriculum Fair is only a few days away, and we are excited to announce the program schedule and keynote speakers. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Pre-register NOW if you haven't done so already. This will save you time Saturday morning as well as help us avoid a bottleneck during registration.
  • Please note the NEW LOCATION! Due to forces out of our control, we had to change the venue to Kenwood Academy H.S. at 5015 S. Blackstone. 
  • Take a look at the workshops so you can plan accordingly.
  • BRING YOUR OWN WATER BOTTLE. We will not be providing plastic bottles of water.
Here is the schedule for the day as well as the keynote speakers and program.
