New Book: Doing Social Justice Education

Posted by Stylus Publishing on November 10, 2020

Doing Social Justice Education, A Practitioner’s Guide for Workshops and Structured Conversations, by D. Scott Tharp with Roger A. Moreano.

This book is principally written for entry-level student affairs and non-profit staff who develop and facilitate social justice education workshops and structured conversations, as well as for student peer educators who are often employed to assist in the facilitation of workshops.

The authors provide a practical framework and hands-on tools to craft effective and positive interventions and workshops that are relevant to context and are true to the facilitator’s own circumstances.

Offering a succinct but comprehensive introduction to the planning, design, and facilitation of social justice experiences, grounding readers in relevant theory, the book also takes into account participants’ prior understandings of issues of race and privilege, institutional environment and campus climate, and the facilitator’s positionality. The perfect companion for beginners, it provides guidance on defining outcomes and developing content and exercises to achieve workshop goals.
