On March 14, nearly one million students participated in school walkouts as part of the student-led #NeverAgain movement for gun reform. Since then, viral moments of student activism have continued across the nation, including sit-ins and marches. Speaking out for equity and justice is not new in U.S. schools and New Mexico students and teachers have been part of this long history, as well. Join us as we raise our collective voices through stories of equity and justice and share the ways we promote student voice to inspire change through literacy.
Our voices matter, as do our students’ voices. How have you and your students used your voices to raise awareness? How have you elevated student voice in your classroom? What role does student voice play in your classroom or curriculum? How have you used your own voice to promote students or teachers? What issues are you or your students passionate about? What curriculum or texts do you use to promote equity and justice? What type of student writing or speaking assignments do you use to promote student voice? How can we leverage student language and literacy to inspire change for students in New Mexico and beyond?
Join educators from around the state for the fall conference hosted by the New Mexico Council Teachers of English. Language Arts teachers in English and Spanish, as well as content teachers who support literacy development are invited to attend.
