Back by popular demand, the PAT Social Justice and Community Outreach Committee will be hosting another Special Education Social, dedicated to members on the special education team! This event is open to any educator who works as a special education educator, whether in a self-contained learning center, as an SLP, or as a school psychologist. Come network with other special educators, find ways to support each other, and build community. Let’s get organized! The social will be December 6th from 4:30-6:30 PM at the PAT office. RSVP so we can order enough dinner.
Portland area teachers, Oregon Writing Project coaches, and members of the Rethinking Schools and Zinn Education project team have been hard at work on a curriculum based on Richard Rothstein’s 2017 book, The Color of Law. You are invited to help us workshop this new curriculum and learn more about the history of housing discrimination. You’ll leave with new ideas and resources to bring back to your classroom.
When: December 13th, 4:30-6:30
Where: Portland Association of Teachers, 345 NE 8th, Portland, Oregon 97232
Who: Chris Buehler, Angela DiPasquale, Alex Stegner, and Ursula Wolfe-Rocca will lead the workshop.RSVP here
The goal of the Engage! project is to have a face-to-face, one-on-one conversation with every one of our members, to learn what‘s working in our schools and what’s getting in the way of teaching and learning. Sign up here to volunteer to be a listener.
This fall, we need enough volunteers to get to every school site we didn't visit last year. We need your help to make this possible!
Please volunteer on an upcoming Friday to take a day away from your classroom to talk to teachers in another school. OEA will pay for your sub, and volunteers have described their experience as being “invigorating and enlightening.”
