"Seek ways to make space for socially significant topics and themes by explicitly using them to organize the curriculum or by working them into the subjects they are mandated to teach," James Beane. It's work to create a classroom that sustains democratic ways of living. Students need to take an active role in what/ how the classroom works if we want authentic engagement. That means finding ways to include their voices in the planning process. This digital resource can be distributed to students (and is editable). The resource attempts to have students think about questions/ concerns in regards to SELF + questions / concerns in regards to the world in which they are a part. It moves beyond simply asking what students "want to do" or "what they are interested in" as democratic teaching is not a matter of doing whatever students are interested in. But rather, this resource should be used to brainstorm and consider certain kinds of issues and concerns that our class would find interesting/ socially relevant and meaningful. This activity will allow students to brainstorm and select target themes (focus for the curriculum), establish guiding questions to serve as a scope and sequence, while also suggesting/ designing classroom activities.
