Educator Activism in Politically Polarized Times

Editors: Alan Amtzis, Tabitha Dell’Angelo, and Ryan Flessner

Due date: November 1, 2017

What is the impact of political polarization on curricula, pedagogy, funding, and other imposed policies across the educational landscape? How are P-16+ educators and school leaders responding to politically motivated intellectual and policy challenges at the school level? In what ways are teacher educators revising their materials and methods in response to political strife? How are educators negotiating political conflicts with government and community stakeholders at all levels?

For example, some educators in the UK hope to revive political education at the school level as a means to create a more civically literate society. Similarly, in the US, where the federal administration has taken controversial stances on climate change, civil rights, and immigration, many teachers are adjusting curricula and pedagogy to emphasize and retain access to social and scientific knowledge important to a just and inclusive democracy. In many countries and cultures around the globe, educational processes are being mediated by state-sponsored mandates. This themed issue seeks to explore and highlight the educational advocacy and activist work being done in the name of global literacy, social justice, and resistance in a political climate where new filters on knowledge may seek to dismantle public education and affiliated social institutions by limiting critical perspectives in students’ educational experience.

Research articles, essays, and policy briefs might address questions or ideas such as:

  • the ways schools and communities are implementing strategies that recognize and respond to conditions that contribute to (or address) education inequity
  • the methods educators are taking to actualize and maintain strong social justice stances in and out of the classroom
  • the approaches educators, students, and communities are taking to organize as participants in the growing movement to resist political agendas
  • the individual or local pedagogic practices and wide-scale reforms being implemented to ensure student access to all knowledge

These questions suggest topic areas but are not exhaustive. We encourage submissions not only from scholars and researchers but also from students, teachers, and community members.

Submissions should not exceed 7,000 words, including all references.

We seek previously unpublished thematic essays or empirical research. For full instructions, please visit: http://www.kdp.org/publications/theeducationalforum/authorguidelines.php

Submission deadline: November 1, 2017. Submissions must be made at: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/utef

Please include the code “823” at the beginning of your manuscript title.

Interested in sharing your innovative techniques and content?
Learning environments should model innovation, be centered on real-world issues, and be visually or technologically stimulating, Convo presentations should be too! Quality learning experiences for attendees should be designed using approaches that engage participants in active learning and lead to maximum retention.

Presentations selected for the program will include a wide variety of topics in several specific formats. All proposals will be evaluated according to established criteria. Following a peer review only the highest quality presentations that best fit the framework of the Convocation will be added to the program. To help you get started review the educational strands and suggested topics here.

Workshops
[May be scheduled on any day of the 3-day conference; 60-minutes]
KDP is seeking workshop presenters who will engage attendees in innovative ways, create highly interactive sessions, and provide opportunities for application and use of the information. Ideally, the format should be no more than 50% delivered information, with the rest of the session including interactive or hands-on engagement. 

EdTalks
[May be scheduled on any day of the 3-day conference; 15 minutes within a 60-minute session]
Individuals will have 15 minutes to share a tightly focused presentation, followed by a 15-minute block at the end for questions and discussion. KDP will select and group three topically related presentations within each session.

Story Slams
[May be scheduled on any day of the 3-day conference; 10 minutes within a 60-minute session]
Real stories are an engaging way to convey impactful messages and lessons. In this format, selected presenters must share a personal story from their own experience in a way that includes a lesson in overcoming an obstacle in a school, team, or professional setting or a teaching strategy. KDP will assign each presenter to a group so that attendees will listen to a series of five presenters, each presenter sharing a 10-minute story.

Chapter Posters
[Saturday only, 75-minute session]
Set up like a gallery, this poster session provides an informal way for chapters to share best practices and successful strategies within the Chapter Member Engagement Model. Through a poster display, a prepared 10–15 minute presentation, and handouts, posters offer new ideas for programming, leadership, and chapter management that current and future leaders can take back to their respective chapters. Possible topics for this poster session include service projects, officer training, member retention programs, fundraising practices, collaboration with community agencies, literacy programs, and strategies for becoming an Achieving Chapter of Excellence (ACE) chapter.
