Teaching for Social Justice

The concept of teaching for social justice has been heralded as a way to not only meet the Common Core State Standards and increase student learning, but also to work towards the goal of equity/justice in a democratic society. The problem being that scholars who argue for social justice pedagogy often have differing ideologies and methods. “Teaching for Social Justice” aims to resolve these tensions by designing curriculum, supporting the development of teachers as social justice educators, and disseminating these lessons to progressively wider audiences. This goal requires a break from a dominant paradigm which views teaching as monologic, teacher-centered, and lecture-based.
