Occupy Oakland’s Education Committee calls on educators in the Bay Area and around the world to teach about this movement! Pledge now to Teach Occupy Oakland!
OCCUPY OAKLAND TEACH-IN WEEK
10/31-11/4 including 11/2 General Strike Day of Action
@ Schools or Alternative Locations
We encourage teachers to use this time to teach about:
• The Occupy Movement
• The role of strikes in movement history
• The systems and issues this movement is protesting against
• The possibilities for change this movement is part of envisioning
• What students need to know about how to stay safe during protests*
*We especially urge all teachers whose students will be attending protests to teach a “know your rights” & protest safety lesson on Monday or Tuesday. Check out the materials database link below for resources.*
