Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

WHY
1. Begin through the antiracist lens of education and our responsibility as educators to allow every student to show mastery of learning, regardless of background and how to embrace technology as an equalizer (10 min.)

HOW - Each part will have a short "I do" "You do" and depending on numbers, set, etc, is fluid depending on the learners and the space. Here is a rough outline but, as any lesson, may be adapted as necessary. (approximate timing)

Using social media to inspire classroom assessment.
2. Examine/study mentor texts online using TikTok, Twitter, Instagram, including the prevalence of memes and GIFs (10)
3. Discuss the different guidelines for each platform (15)
4. Crete assignment with classroom content (target/rubric/outcome) and chosen mentor text to create a post. This is purposefully open to allow teachers to pick a platform they want, allowing for choice and mirroring what should be done in the classroom (15)
5. Demo how to use copyright free images or give credit appropriately (5)
6. Practice creating as students would (15)
