Hull of a House

Report Back from the TSJ Curriculum Fair


Our poets, Joe and Sean, at the Teachers for Social Justice Curriculum Fair

Last month was the annual Teachers for Social Justice Curriculum Fair, and it’s a really fun event.  Educators come from around the city to share their innovative curriculum, attend workshops, and eat some delicious Mexican food.

I love this event because all of our education allies attend.  This year Joe and Sean, two of our museum educators, worked at the museum table to tell visitors about what the museum offers to visitors and classrooms.

When I asked Joe and Sean to write a blog post about the day, they decided to write a haiku.  What creative educators.  Thanks guys!

Good coffee and food
Good people for good causes
Sun shines in Pilsen

Jane Addams was there
In spirit if not body
The fight must go on
