Thanks for the article! I thought it was interesting that you suggest getting you know each students background in order to better teach the social justice curriculum. Viewing each issue through just our point of view can create a specific bias and can block our growth and learning. I once had a teacher that made sure we understood every aspect of a situation in order to make an educated decision. This always made learning about new and challenging topics more enjoyable. I really appreciate your input, I hope to apply it to my own teaching style.
The Social Welfare and Justice major is designed to provide students with the knowledge and experience needed to pursue successful careers in social service, social policy analysis, mediation and intervention, and social justice advocacy. Through course work, service learning, and internships, students gain understanding of the complexities of a range of social welfare and justice issues and learn the analytic and practical skills needed to develop, evaluate, and transform social welfare and justice policies and services.
