Education as a Practice of Freedom

Liberatory learning is education for life. If we want our students to walk away with the skills, knowledge, and competencies to thrive in and out of school, our classrooms need to center authentic student thought and action. This deep dive is specifically for classroom teachers who want to design projects that promote critical consciousness, civic engagement, and social equity. In this session, participants will ideate, create, and plan out their own projects that focus on adult-world challenges and experiences. Participants will be asked to creatively think about how to integrate social justice standards; diversify their learning spaces and activities; and to consider joy and autonomy as an important educational endeavor. Teachers will leave this session with a full, ready to go project plan that allows their students to be intellectually stimulated, meaningfully engaged, and authentically included.
