Movement Raising Awareness of Sexual Assault and Harassment
To raise awareness about sexual assault and harassment, a new organization called Stop Sexual Assault in Schools has launched #MeTooK12. The goal is to bring attention to the problem in the school environment in the same way the “Me Too” movement has exposed sexual misconduct in the professional and political realms. Young women now use the #MeTooK12 hashtag to tell stories about sexual misconduct and describe school environments that marginalize women. Stop Sexual Assault in Schools also offers resources on its website to help schools combat the problem, particularly when it comes to hiring a Title IX coordinator to investigate reports of gender discrimination.
Each month we publish blogs and several newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in May.
A project of Deeper Learning, the Share Your Learning campaign highlights the value of having students present their work to authentic audiences. In sharing their stories of learning, students reflect on their growth and engage in real dialogue with others about their accomplishments and their futures. To get started, teachers can sign up to join a community of educators encouraging students to produce meaningful work for an authentic audience.
