Social Contract, Social Justice: Unionize Your Classroom!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Have you ever entered a classroom dynamic that made you and the students uncomfortable? We invite you to share the foibles of teaching and explore a social justice tool to proactively shape learning spaces. Grounded in participatory learning, social contracts can create environments in which librarians and students hold each other accountable for intent and impact in shaping their communal learning space. Your values will be the catalyst for creating social contracts.

Participants will:
  • Take away a repository of sample social contract items and an annotated bibliography of resources.
  • Leave with resources to help them understand and create social contracts in their own classes/institutions.
  • Be able to describe the benefits of using a social contract in their library instruction.
