About this learning opportunity

This learning opportunity will look at the connections between social justice and our classroom curriculum. Weaving a social justice program into our curriculum means moving it from “one more extra-curricular on our plate”, to a valuable, curriculum based learning activity for our students. Explore the mental health benefits of using social justice issues in our classrooms, schools, and communities. You will spend the afternoon developing your own social justice project with the advantage of input/feedback from others in the room.

This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
