Submit a Lesson Plan

To All Educators:

If your experience as an educator has produced transformative and empowering work with students, if you have an interesting classroom design conducive to contextualized learning, or have implemented lesson plans and activities based on critical pedagogy, we want to hear from you.

Critical pedagogy is a teaching approach that attempts to help students question and challenge domination, and the beliefs and practices that dominate. In other words, it is a theory and practice of helping students achieve critical consciousness.  Critical Pedagogy includes relationships between teaching and learning. It is a continuous process of unlearning, learning and relearning, reflection, evaluation and the impact that these actions have on the students, in particular students who have been historically and continue to be disenfranchised by traditional schooling.
