Propose a Workshop for NWTSJ 2019


Dear Northwest Teaching for Social Justice friends,

We are looking for teachers, teacher educators, and community activists to present curriculum, information, and resources at our 2019 conference. The workshops will last 1½ hours. Successful workshops will:
- Express a social justice perspective
- Be hands on, experiential, and practical
- Give participants a chance to talk to one another

We are looking for workshops that balance content and process, where participants can learn something new about the intersections of education and social justice, and have a chance to discuss and reflect on their own experiences and practices.

These areas have been under-represented at the conference in past years. We especially welcome and encourage proposals that cover any of the following:

- Special Education
- English Language Learners
- Elementary
- Science and Math
- Adult Education
- Early Childhood

We hope you will consider submitting a workshop proposal for the conference. Go to www.nwtsj.org and look in the “Workshops” column. If you encounter problems or have questions, write rfp@nwtsj.org.

Last year's conference in Portland was an inspiring and thought-provoking gathering -- with about 1,350 educators from around the Northwest. Next fall, we'll be back in Seattle, and anticipate another great event -- Saturday, October 19th. Details at www.nwtsj.org. Please mark your calendar.

Thanks for your important work.
The Northwest Teaching for Social Justice Conference planning committee
