Teaching for social justice is a choice about pedagogy as well as content, and the High Leverage Teaching Practice (HLTP) of creating a discourse community helps achieve the goals of social justice education by drawing on students' skills and engaging learners in discussions about meaningful topics at all levels. This includes social justice topics that center target language cultures to create a classroom discourse community that merges HLTP with content and methodology that are based in the work of justice and equality. Attendees will develop an understanding of the HLTP while integrating the practice into a social justice based class. Participants will use strategies for discourse engagement promoting discussion and assessment on meaningful topics at all levels.
