Beginning in Fall 2020, state law requires New Jersey schools to “include instruction, and adopt instructional materials, that accurately portray the political, economic, and social contributions of persons with disabilities” in middle school and high school curricula. Through discussion, hands-on activities, and collaborative group work, we’ll explore disability as a socially constructed category that shaped history, science, literature, and political/legal connections over time. Teachers in all fields will develop practical applications to build cultural competency, strengthen students’ critical thinking skills, and enhance the cultural climate of the classroom and school.
This workshop is presented by Priti Haria and Lydia Fecteau. Associate Professor of Special Education, Priti Haria, is an educator with teaching and research interest in developing instructional models and strategies to support students struggling with vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing. Lydia Fecteau is a lifelong advocate for Disability issues and professor of Disability Studies courses at Stockton University.
