Making Space: Teaching for Diversity and Social Justice Throughout the K-12 Curriculum

Making Space is designed to help K-12 teachers in virtually every subject area find ways to promote:

- awareness and understanding of the diversity that exists within our society—differences that are visible (e.g., race, ethnicity, sex, age, physical ability) and differences that are less visible (e.g., culture, ancestry, language, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic background, mental ability)

- support for the achievement of social justice for all people and groups—particularly in ensuring that people’s backgrounds and circumstances do not prevent them from achieving the full benefits of participation in society, and in addressing injustice faced by those who historically have been and today frequently continue to be marginalized, ignored, or subjected to discrimination or other forms of oppression.
