Re-imagining Urban Education

Re-imagining Urban Education Presentation

Create a presentation that explains the insights you have taken from our work in the course related to what it takes to make schooling equitable. To create transformational change, we must acquire knowledge but also act. Here is your opportunity to imagine what/how you will change/transform education to build a place where our students can do more than survive.

The ask:
Create a presentation that provides a model of your approach to an equitable and just form of schooling
Describe 3-5 principles (Theories/Research that you have learned in class) that will guide your practice
o For each principle, provide at least two examples of practices (what you will do in class) that you will engage in that will be a manifestation of the principles
o Explain why they will be so important to your practice and potential challenges you think you might face in implementing them
o Explain how each practice will be equitable or just (or both) for your students
o Explain how you will confront the challenges you expect to face
o Include your most compelling references to at least 5 of the readings from the course


Your presentation should be a minimum of 10 slides and include a citation slide at the end of the presentation.

  • Many of the readings from the week on the history of the animal protection movement compared the animal rights and protection efforts to the Civil Rights Movement in both the tactics used and in their public policy approaches. Compare and contrast the Civil Rights Movement to the animal movement in terms of strategy, public perception, and legislation. Discuss the advantages and weaknesses (whether in terms of public perception, your own personal views, or otherwise) of such comparisons.
