Welcome to March's Challenge

Social Justice and Equity


This month my class has been working on a Language Arts unit called "It's Not Fair" with Ashley Dizy, a pre-service teacher who was working in our classroom. The students kept a Fairness Journal to record thoughts, ideas, assignments and reflections throughtout the unit. They learned about Fair Trade Chocolate, read stories about fairness and particpated in activites that made them think about "What is Fair?"
