How do we help our children make sense of the world when the world hardly makes sense to us? What tools for social justice and self actualization do our children need to lead purposeful, fulfilled lives? How do we empower our children to protect the tenets of social justice so critical for a peaceful, prosperous tomorrow? In a world riddled with social media amid a global pandemic, what does it mean to raise writer-activists? Join Hareem Khan in answering these questions and more!
Hareem’s passion for teaching writing stems from the belief that all children can write with power and voice. She views literacy as a tool for self-advocacy and social justice. Hareem is a master teacher, teacher-educator and the author of several curricular units for both reading and writing. As a full-time faculty member in the Literacy Speciality Department at Teachers College, Hareem supervises the fieldwork experiences of new teachers, and supports them in conducting action research in classrooms. Hareem is also a Senior Staff Developer at the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, a role that takes her to classrooms across the United States and internationally.
