Bringing educators timely and relevant conversations to support student-centered instruction.
In her newest book, Being the Change, author Sara Ahmed explores the importance of social comprehension in the classroom; understanding those often tricky-to-navigate landscapes of race, gender, politics, religion, sexuality… In July Sara spoke at the Nerd Camp literacy conference in Michigan about the tensions many of us feel during big moments in history.
In her presentation, Sara shared with listeners her experience on September 11, 2001. As we reflect on the events that took place that day, we felt that Sara’s story perfectly highlights both the progress we’ve made, and the great lengths we still have to go as a nation of teachers, learners, and engaged citizens.
