Amani Abutaleb, Katherin PaDilla, JoN anTOL EDFN 305 Subjects: History and Literature Grade: 11th
This website was created to help provide guidance for teachers and provide lesson plans exploring gentrificaton and it's resistance. This curriculum was designed for Juniors in a chicago Public Highschool. This website also includes DETAILED LESSON PLANS, GUEST SPEAKERS, BOOKS AND OTHER READINGS, FUN HANDS ON ACTIVITIES, PROJECTS, and field trips. WE HOPE THAT EVERYTHING IN THIS WEBSITE WILL HELP YOU IN CREATING A SUCCESSFUL CURRICULUM UNIT FOR YOUR CLASS AND HELP STUDENTS UNDERSTAND the historical background of the HumbolDT Park community not only as a site of resistance to gentrification, but also as a culturally and ethnically diverse neighborhood community.
this project was completed by NEIU students as a requirement for EDFN 305, with Dr. Aviles de Bradley and in conjunction with the Chicago Grassroots Curriculum Taskforce. All contents on this website were created solely by College of Education candidates who were challenged to embrace local liberatory curriculum development from their own disciplines of focus. The curricular frameworks (maps, lesson plan, guides, etc.) represented here are from CGCT, yet the content reflects our own small group work and perspectives. It does not represent a CGCT curriculum and is not classroom-tested. We do hope this site assists you in your inquiries into this important topic of concern. Please see www.grassrootscurriculum.org for more info. on the group we collaborated with. Thank you.
