This course will offer teachers the tools to design curriculum with equity for all, especially to those students who are historically underserved. Teachers will create two lesson plans with rubrics to make students accountable for their work. Participants will critique each other's lessons in order to maximize rigor and include critically conscious concepts. After keeping track of their own progress through the reflection of learning goals, journal entries, and a science notebook, teachers will synthesize this information while they have students design goals in the classroom that will instill a sense of inclusiveness and a sense of respect for others. Teachers will create a remote learning project that could be implemented into their own classrooms and share with the other participants in the course.
