Literacy practitioners and researchers who teach with equity and justice in mind regularly advocate for providing students with rich literacy experiences that blend texts with lived realities of our young people. Whether it is Culturally Revelant/Sustaining Pedagogy(CR/SP) or Anti-Racist Teaching(ART), centering the dignity and humanity of youth and their families becomes critical to our work as we use literacy to perform and conduct acts of restorative justice. During this virtual workshop, Jevon will lead a discussion of how CR/SP and ART can be leveraged to organize instruction and support our youth's learning through agentive literacy activities. At the core of our work will be Critical Inquiry Projects, a form of inquiry-based learning that intentionally joins academic knowledge with critical and social awareness in an effort to provide students with the necessary skill sets to actively participate in a democratic society. Turnkey materials, reading lists, sample texts, and other resources will be shared.
