National Days of Teaching Truth

About the Event

We are joining with many other groups that include educators, students, and communities to promote and participate in the National Days of Teaching Truth, May 1-31, 2022. The week may consist of teaching–not just in schools–but also at school board meetings, public meetings and forums, libraries, in our homes with community members, at community centers, on-line and on social media. Activities under the banner of the National Days of Teaching Truth can include: 

  • Artistic, musical, poetic, dance performances or other ways of voicing dissent and celebrating truth. 
  • Reading, reciting, or discussing banned books (perhaps include authors of these books and/or experts about them) Teaching or developing lessons on race and racism, academic freedom and censorship, gender and sexuality and what it means to be educated in a country that claims to be free.
  • Posting lesson plans or blogging about lessons on censored books and topics/lessons targeted by education gag orders.
