Adults/caregivers and their elementary age children are encouraged to join together for an interactive and investigative experience. Please note that educators joining on their own are welcome, and will find the experience meaningful as well!

Project-based learning is an important and an effective teaching approach to challenge all learners, including those who are above grade level and need advanced instruction. But there is no one way to implement project-based learning, and teachers often find it difficult to integrate project-based learning into required units of study.

In this course, participants will investigate how privilege and access intersects within the educational system through unsuspecting or intentional/unintentional behaviors. We will discuss how people use their privilege as a form of entitlement to gain access, popularly known as being a “Karen” or “Ken.” Participants will dissect and reflect on how this denies others access and perpetuates stereotypes, bias, and racism using historical structures, systems, and institutions to oppress. Together, we’ll develop skill in navigating spaces in more culturally responsive ways in order to begin dismantling structures that gate-keep marginalized or under-represented populations.
