Washington State University – Virtually over Zoom

Wayne Au — a Professor in the School of Educational Studies at University of Washington Bothell and an Editorial Board Member of Rethinking Schools — will provide our Saturday closing keynote event through a Q&A with WSU graduate students. The Q&A will focus on being an academic/scholar, an activist, and thinking through our collective work as part of institutions of higher education.

Join Rethinking Schools editor, Ursula Wolfe-Rocca for Panel #13: “Pipeline Protests: Putting Climate Civil Disobedience into the Curriculum.” This is an interactive workshop where attendees will walk away with classroom-ready curriculum suitable for multiple content areas in grades 7-12 based on role plays drawn from the documentary film, Necessity: Oil, Water, and Climate Resistance, which details the story of multiple cohorts of climate activists: Indigenous leaders in the climate justice movement, valve turners using civil disobedience to stop the flow of oil, and the legal team that uses the “necessity defense” in the courts.
