Process

Teachers participating in the learning series will experience a half day workshop with unlearn. Following this session, the teachers will select two students from their class who will collaborate in a full day session to explore equity through an integrated curriculum model, using unlearn’s equity-focused poster pack. The expectation is for school teams to engage their peers in an unlearn experience that they create. The final half-day session will bring teachers and students back together to share about their experience.
