"…if you can't read or write or do your computational skills, you're in trouble. You can become a victim, or you might make someone else a victim in your ignorance." - Leon Bass, Liberator  

Students need to develop critical literacy to examine the world around them with curiosity and a critical eye to be #StrongerThanHate. Testimony-based resources in IWitness inspire student inquiry, activate their prior knowledge, validate their experience, and evolve their understanding through reflective, analytical and evaluative inquiries. This type of critical literacy is transformative and can lead students to discover their sense of agency to act and make a difference. This year's IWitness professional development will present testimony-based strategies for fostering multiple critical literacies in your students.
