Participants will examine two strategies to use in social justice units that are active and engaging as well as how to use warm-ups to connect to students’ lives. We will discuss what to highlight and what to avoid when teaching about injustices across content areas. The Tuskegee Syphilis Study will be the model and we will also look at a brief history of the study.
