This is the book your students need you to read. Susan’s new book is now available for pre-order. This is a practical, hands-on guide to weaving the concepts of healthy communities, democratic societies, and social justice into academic disciplines. Developed for future and practicing teachers, this volume is perfect for teacher education courses in instructional design, social foundations, and general education, as well as for study in professional learning communities.
This book will challenge you to consider the larger story of education in the 21st century and respond with curriculum makeovers that engage students in solving problems in their schools, communities, and the larger world. It presents a proven method for designing units that gives educators across grades and disciplines the tools to bring sustainability and social justice into experiential, project-based instructional approaches.
