This set has 51 (14 new words have been added) vocabulary cards, one blank card, and an optional header so you can start a word wall with vocabulary relevant to current social justice issues.
I made this vocabulary list to fit the decolonizing, anti-bias approach I'm using in my curriculum.
This vocabulary must be used in context. Having a #wokewall in your classroom should be a point of reference when you are teaching anti-bias units.
The words in this set should not be used in vocabulary activities (fill in the blank, dictionary definitions, matching, etc) devoid of context.
This is why I forwent the idea of doing a glossary because, if you do not have a deep understanding of this vocabulary, you should not be using it in classes without proper training, readings and critical awareness.
This set that only costs $5 is obviously not an Anti-Bias course or training and it was not made to replace one. I insist - it is a reference point for students whose teachers are already doing anti-bias work in their classes.
This vocabulary should be humanized by tying it to real inequity issues faced by real people nowadays. DO NOT use it without context.
If you have more words to add, there is a blank card that you can use to add your own words. You can always do your own header with bulletin board letters like I did.
Ideas on how to work with the vocabulary in your classes will be posted on my Instagram account regularly.
I’ll be posting a list of suggested readings later this week on my Link Tree. If you are interested, I also use my Instagram and Twitter space to share knowledge and amplify the voices of those who should be learning from.
Consejito: Diversify your social media feeds with BIPOC/LGBTQ voices
PS: The word ‘spiritualities’ was chosen over the word religions because the structural, and organizational sense of the latter, disregards other cosmovisions and approaches to the divine.
