Our Curriculum

Click to See Our Theory of Change

Rather than being simply embedded in an experience (such as learning a new language, negotiating the K-12 school system, or creating lessons to deliver as a teacher), we push our participants to be aware of their being embedded in these experiences.  From this awareness comes a clearer understanding of one's identity in the context of others and in dialogue with systems.  This new awareness urges participants to become more responsible to others in their communities, and demands that communities become more inclusive in their operation and development. 

 

The SEED is just getting started!

In the near future, we hope to provide three distinct, but related experiences:

Language Classes - English as a Second or Other Language (ESOL) classes are the foundation of our work.

Students as Teachers - The learner becomes the teacher, exploring education and curriculum theory while creating and implementing courses related to passions, skills, or questions.

Family Engagement - Schools are only effective if they're engaged with families.  We will work with families to better navigate the K-12 school system, including the language and customs.
