This curriculum contains many practices fundamental to Humanities Amped. It includes a set of Adaptable Methods that can be implemented into any class as well as three curricular frameworks: Critical Participatory Action Research, Youth Development, and Reading the Word, Reading the World.
Standing at the Intersection Workshop Series
This workshop series (SAI), a collaboration with Forward Arts, provides a curricular response to the growing visual documentation of police violence against unarmed black people. These workshops were piloted at McKinley High School and at the East Baton Rouge Public School System Culturally Relevant Pedagogy Professional Development Series (see below).
Culturally Relevant Pedagogy Professional Development Series
The "Culturally Relevant Pedagogy" tab on this site features the resources we used in the fall 2016 day-long professional development sessions that we conducted with local public high school teachers (day 1) and middle school teachers (day 2). These sessions were requested by the East Baton Rouge Parish School System to prepare teachers for mutually respectful, critically necessary conversations with colleagues and students about how our intersecting identities shape our perspectives on and experiences of the world.
