TUESDAYS 5:00 - 7:00 pm 7:00 PM
This group will focus on developing curriculum specific to the primary grades on the oppressive, patriarchal, and colonized history of the United States. Too often our students read about Christopher Columbus discovering America and the first Thanksgiving without the truth. There is not a lot of curriculum today that reveals what really happened, so this group will focus on developing that curriculum for the primary grades.

TUESDAYS 6:00 to 8:00 pm00 - 8:00 PM
Are you interested in incorporating Social Justice into your math curriculum? During this ITAG we would like to invite educators, parents, students, and community members to collectively participate in the creation of lesson plans that will allow students to read the world through mathematics. We will explore different social justice topics and their mathematical connections to develop lessons to use in different grade levels.

TUESDAYS 10:30 am to 12:30 pm30 AM - 12:30 PM
In this ItAG we will work together to study culturally relevant science curriculum. We will also explore the NGSS to see what role they can/should play in culturally relevant teaching and learning. Our goal will be to design curricular units for high school science which engage students not only in learning science but also in learning to see their world through more critical eyes.

Register for ItAGs here. Registration is required and free!

Please spread the word to your educator/student/parent networks and on social media.
