This course will provide a framework for students to understand the historical and contemporary context of social justice education on Turtle Island. Drawing from scholarship that includes critical race theory, queer theory, feminist theory, and anti-colonial theory, students will examine their own teaching practices, as well as investigate research examples of intersecting anti-racist pedagogy across the disciplines. Students will be required to develop critical anti-racist materials to use in their classroom, with a focus on integrating Indigenous education in their teaching practices. Intersecting anti-racist pedagogy for social change invites students and teachers to actively transform social injustices, not just study them.
