Teachers are in a unique position to help students understand and develop concern for the vast inequities, misinformation, racism, misogyny, climate denial and general intolerance that plague our democracy. We know that reading relevant and well written books will help our students (and ourselves). By reading (or listening to) and annotating potential student selections, you can enthusiastically and knowledgeably guide your students into becoming educated citizens. For this course, you will read engaging books of your choice and prepare book talks, lessons, conversation starters or other activities of your choice.
This course can be taken multiple times as 9049 and 9050 for 1 Semester Credit/Unit each.
