One of the ways RAPP programs keep their curricula up-to-date in terms of content and process is annual reviews & "refreshes" of our curricula. Though it means an on-going time investment, it also means new people are able to participate in the curricular process each year, sharing their learning and insight.
Accelerating Racial Justice is currently undergoing its "curriculum refresh." People from the RAPP Steering Committee and student staff of ARJ 2013 are reviewing the content, poring through a wealth of feedback from the pilot group, and identify then making needed changes.
ARJ's curriculum was initially developed by members of the RAPP Working Group using the Understanding by Design curriculum and assessment method throughout the summer of 2012.
We have three remaining meetings in the process - contact RAPP Program Coordinator Rebecca Lehman (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you're interested in joining us!
