Limited Capacity filling up

Too often, students are assigned dumpsterprojects--those with little personal connection that end up in the trash after grading.  We know that the best way to foster deep learning is through authentic experiences that build upon students' passions.  Given our social-political climate, students should be self-advocates for the concerns of their community and use digital tools to tell personal stories about race, gender and economic inequities.  This session will share successful social justice practices and discuss ways to empower students to have a positive impact on their community, themselves and society.
