#DISRUPTTEXTS Looks Like An Exceptional Resource Where English Teachers Can Learn & Contribute

| 0 comments

I’ve been seeing some pretty impressive tweets lately with the #DISRUPTTEXTS hashtag, and was thrilled to learn that it has a website.

Here’s how the organizers describe it:

Disrupt Texts is a crowdsourced, grass roots effort by teachers for teachers to challenge the traditional canon in order to create a more inclusive, representative, and equitable language arts curriculum that our students deserve.

Each week, join us for the #DisruptTexts slow chat on Twitter as teachers from across the country and world come together to apply a critical lens on a central text. We’ll discuss how to disrupt traditional pedagogies by suggesting alternative titles and approaches through thoughtful pairings, counter-narratives, and inclusive, diverse texts sets.

The #DisruptTexts chat and website are facilitated by Tricia EbarviaLorena GermanDr. Kim Parker, and Julia Torres.

 

It seems like a great idea, and the facilitators are an impressive line-up.

I’m adding it to The Best Teacher Resource Sites For Social Justice Issues.
