Just in time for Teacher Appreciation Week, SEED Co-director and English teacher Emily Style's latest article, "Curriculum as Encounter: Selves and Shelves," has appeared in the May issue of English Journal (available to NCTE members only). The piece extends her previous articles on "Curriculum as Window and Mirror" and "Resources and Strategies for Doing Window and Mirror Curriculum Work."
As a classroom teacher in 1961, SEED summer staff member Willa Cofield and her students watched as the Freedom Riders non-violently challenged segregation on public buses. Willa here shares how she is using her personal experience during the civil rights era, along with SEED methods, to celebrate Black History Month and "to continue honoring Black history throughout the year."
This continues our series of 20 questions that SEED Founder Peggy McIntosh answered about SEED for the Wellesley Centers for Women's Research & Action Report. This week, she talks about standardized testing, bringing teachers and students' own experiences into the classroom, and the "hard questions" of equity and diversity.
