Resources for Teachers

Are you interested in helping colleague teachers become Everyday Advocates? 

If you have one hour:

-   Introduce the concept of Everyday Advocacy and invite teachers to find their stories of self, us, and now. This can set the stage for finding common values and language for your department or school.

 

If you have 3 hours:

-   Introduce the concept of Everyday Advocacy and invite teachers to find their stories of self, us, and now. Then ask teachers to name the issue that keeps them up at night and consider how to frame it for others.

If you have 3 days: 

Use the resources on this site to create a short and intense summer workshop to prepare teachers with a thoughtful action plan they can put into practice in the academic year. And if the workshop is followed up with occasional support meetings (virtually or in person), teachers can find a community to sustain this work. 

One possible format:

  • Day 1  Telling our stories as a start to Advocacy Work

    • Discovering the important stories of our teaching lives

    • Learning about Advocacy

    • Naming your burning issue

  • Day 2  Raising our voices as a community

  • Day 3: Creating Action Plans
