There is nothing like a good speaker, an inspirational article, a shocking statistic or a tale of activism to inspire us to look deeply into ourselves as well as at our students and strive to be better teachers, researchers, and/or activists. Part of the reason this site exists is because I, the moderator, have been inspired by so many others. We can only write from and act from our own experiences; however, it is from and with interaction with others that we grow. This portion of Teaching Social Justice includes the stories from others that have influenced our cause.
Blogs about educational inspiration and/or re-blogged articles that I found inspiring:
- Hip Hop-spiration
- Mark Zuckerberg Hosts ‘Hackathon’ for Undocumented Immigrants
- When life throws you lemons, show the nation how you fight back
- Ukrainian Rioters’ Fight for Social Justice
- Nelson Mandela: A Leader in Social Justice
- An update on Ukraine
- Change is Happening
- “Kids” doing big things
Note: I will be happy to invite guest bloggers to discuss their inspiration(s) in the classroom as well. If you would like to contribute to this site, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
