Social Justice Curriculum for Families
Planning, implementing and evaluating a six-week course that teaches kids how they can create a more socially just world
This project team is offering a modified version of Chicana Motherwork’s six-week Social Justice Curriculum to the Tompkins County community. The curriculum seeks to teach children and their caregivers about different forms of oppression and social justice and how they can create a more socially just world through art, activism and critical thinking in writing, dialogue and relationship-building. Cornell students are supporting the full spectrum of the project, including planning, community recruitment, implementation and evaluation of the curriculum.
Topics: Access, Equity and Justice; Arts, Communication, Media and Design; Children, Youth, Seniors and Families; Education
