TEACHING

The development of grade school curricula continues to be a politically-charged terrain.  It is a bold reminder that the battles we have over basic access to knowledge about the past are very much a part of the battles we have in the present and future over access to power. 

With the firm belief that the foundation of a multiracial democracy is an open and honest accounting of the past, framed by a deep commitment to human empathy and dignity, our class commits itself to exploring ways to make the past accessible and usable for all.

From 2012-2015, and again beginning in 2019, all students enrolled in “All Power to the People!” conducted research on a topic relating to postwar movements for racial justice. Their project culminated in a “teaching module” designed to enable teachers to create unique learning experiences for young people.

In 2017, all students enrolled in “All Power to the People!” presented the results of their research in a format directly accessible to a younger audience. These short essays follow the question/answer format and seek to connect youth to a fuller understanding of our shared human history.
