The Difference of Disability
November 12, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Why is disability so often left out of the curriculum— and what difference does this make? How can disability studies engender transformative teaching and learning for all? In this session you will learn more about the field disability studies, its connections to related justice movements, and explore demonstration lessons for your own classroom.
