A People's Curriculum for the Earth Celebration


It's time to celebrate! Please join Rethinking Schools for our Portland area book release party on Friday, March 13th. After five years of work, we're excited to share A People's Curriculum for the Earth, edited by Bill Bigelow and Tim Swinehart, with the Portland community and to get it into the hands of teachers and activists eager for critical resources on the environmental crisis. We'll share a few excerpts from the book and talk about the important role that teachers have to play within the growing climate justice movement. And we'll have plenty of copies of the book available for sale and signing.

We're pleased to have the support of our friends at 350 PDX and the Oregon Writing Project, as co-sponsors the event.
