If you're spotted in the stairs by one of our volunteers, you may be rewarded! Cohorts are invited to track their use of the stairs in competition for the prestigious GOLDEN SNEAKER award.

Prof Nina Bascia talks about Curriculum Development in Toronto Alternative Schools: What Goes on in Alternative Schools Stays in Alternative Schools
This presentation focuses on curriculum development in secondary alternative schools in the Toronto District School Board, using the concept of "loose coupling" to describe how teachers and students actively select and craft courses within the context of school board and provincial policy constraints and, at the same time limiting cross-fertilization of innovative curricular cross-fertilization across schools.

What 'doing empathy' is like: Narrative experiences of practicing GTA teachers
Brown Bag Seminar with Student Polina Kukar
Focusing on the operation of empathy in education may appear to sideline more pressing social justice concerns. After all, in context of all the other problems we contend with in education, what could possibly be at stake in invocations of empathy? The conviction that empathy is a positive force in education is not new, and empathy is, indeed, often invoked by practicing teachers, policy makers, and educational theorists. Commonly referred to "putting yourself in someone else's shoes", the specific definition of empathy is as elusive as the usage of the term is widespread. However, the semantic confusion may well be a red herring. I propose that what empathy does (or what educators think it does) is much more important than what empathy is.
What are teachers trying to achieve when they use pedagogies of empathy? How do they understand the role of empathy in their work? After all, understanding other people is hard, and mandating that people try to understand one another in a context as multifaceted as a classroom is a tall order. We know that teacher identity influences the interactions teachers have with their students and with each other, and informs their ability to "put themselves in their students' shoes". This nuance is out of step with much empathy-related policy and curricula which continue to assume a "neutral" teacher role. This presentation draws on interviews conducted with eight practicing Greater Toronto Area teachers to delve into the nuances of what it's like to "do empathy" in the classroom.

Casting a Wide Net: Exploring EcoJustice Through Eco-Art Education

Environmental art education is an engaging way to help children and youth become more environmentally-attuned, and introduce them to age-appropriate forms of environmental activism.

No previous skills in art-making are necessary and all materials are provided. Free, but registration required.

Teaching for "Solidarity": Possibilities, Challenges and Uncomfortable Conversations
Brown Bag Seminar with Dr. Miglena Todorova
This presentation will address current conversations about intergroup solidarities and social forms based on the principles of collectivism and care for each other. The importance of these debates notwithstanding, they lack examples and deep understanding of concrete, practical, and sustainable ways of being together amid racial, gender, sexual, religious, and other difference, especially in educational spaces.
This presentation draws from two related archives- feminist movements and activism internationally, and queer of colour epistemology and praxes- to construct a historical and conceptual map of modes of political solidarity such as togetherness in difference, opening the doors of 'safe rooms,' crossing dangerous bridges, moving from 'knowing' about the oppression of others to doing something about it, and taking responsibility for others who are not like us.
The presentation will focus on enabling and inhibiting factors in enacting these praxes of political and epistemological togetherness in education dedicated to social justice.
