Inquiry to Action Groups (ItAGS) Coming this Fall: Inquiry to Action Groups (ItAGs) are study groups for educators to come together to learn more about a topic and take action. Past ESJ ItAGs have focused on topics including: Race & Education, Social Justice Children’s Literature, Culturally Relevant Teaching, Art & Democracy, Media & Education, Social Studies for Social Justice, and more! We are currently looking for facilitators to lead ItAGs this fall- facilitators choose their own topic and meeting dates. See the attached flyer for more info. Please visit our website to learn more and submit your proposal to facilitate an ItAG- proposal deadline extended until September 18: http://www.educatorsforsocialjustice.org/itags.html
