Prepared by Charles A. Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and other First Nations people are advised that this catalogue contains names, recordings and images of deceased people and other content that may be culturally sensitive. Not then for any particular thoughts, but for the right to think at all. Which is in dispute.
There it is. The line between commitment, advocacy, and activism is a wobbly one at best. The right to think at all. Effective science teaching—activist teaching—frees students from the crystal vault, engages their curiosity and creativity, and encourages them to dive in and sail off on their own voyages of discovery and surprise.
What else? Why does it matter? Meanings about the world and how it operates are constructed differently in different cultures and the drive for science education should not become license to do violence to the delightful and multiple lenses through which our world can be approached. Science is always queering the common sense by asking the next question, and the next.
The answer is yes, both historically and right now. The accepted science of any particular moment proves to be incomplete and often incorrect. Renowned theoretical physicist Freeman Dyson argues that science is a human activity, not just a set of settled facts. Indeed, science and math are also humanities—they are systems of analysis constructed by humans and changing with every generation.
Science is an art form, not a rigid method. He writes:. Science is not governed by the rules of Western philosophy or Western methodology. Science is an alliance of free spirits in all cultures, rebelling against the local tyranny that each culture imposes on its children. Insofar as I am a scientist, my vision of the universe is not reductionist or anti-reductionist. I have no use for Western-isms of any kind.

I feel myself. I was lucky to be introduced to science at school as a subversive activity of the younger boys. We organized the Science Society as an act of rebellion against compulsory Latin and compulsory football. We should try to introduce our children to science today as a rebellion against poverty and ugliness and militarism and economic injustice. Good teaching unsettles the questions and invites authentic inquiry.
And yes, that has an activist edge. Powerful science and math education does not divorce numerical processes from the social context they live within.
Serie: Teaching/Learning Social Justice
Deep learning happens when students work together to solve problems, often inventing the processes or rules necessary to solve those problems. Politicians tell us that activism and teaching must be separated. We are just doing school, but we are not making a difference. Are we going to do anything real? We hardly knew what to expect the day I popped the DVD into a dusty television or if the machine would even work!
They spoke plainly about the urgency for social justice climate action, and they appealed to the students for help. Students were amazed and moved by the desire these global actors showed for their unique knowledge and perspectives.
Literature Review: Evidence of a Social Justice Turn in Service-Learning
Viewing the digital message for the first time, Leapers were instantly active — laughing, back-slapping, calling out to the screen. The correspondence that developed between the MYI-Leapers and the Toronto team was not the only connection Leapers made with the outside world. And they welcomed visitors including Dr. Johnny Williams, community organizer and professor of sociology at nearby Trinity College. While I supported these efforts, what Leap-MYI confirmed, first and foremost in my mind, was the fact that critical pedagogy is a form of activism, as radical and transgressive as more overt forms of resistance — protest marches, letter writing, boycotts, and sit-ins.
Over time, I believe most of the Leapers understood this. But, sadly, I found the community difficult to sustain as the academic year wore on.
Prisons are unpredictable places; most Leapers were transferred without warning. This is typical with items not purchased on commissary. Two lengthy lockdowns significantly impeded our momentum; I was forced to cancel more than one scheduled event. And some Leapers simply found their initial excitement waning.
For these students, the transgressive elements that drew them to form a school club the first of its kind at Manson were eventually overcome by the difficulty of the academic work. And so in April, when I gathered remaining Leapers to help me plan a new summer session this time on the exploration of political sanctuary , I spoke of Leap-MYI in the past tense.
Regrettably, no one resisted. Still, the tone was celebratory and earnest; I asked Leapers to share what it meant to have become signatories of the manifesto and about their plans for an activist future. It is deep down good. I actually told my mom about it and everything.
Yes, good teachers can be activists

The leap must begin by respecting the inherent rights and title of the original caretakers of this land, starting by fully implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
The latest research shows we could get percent of our electricity from renewable resources within two decades; by we could have a percent clean economy. We demand that this shift begin now. No new infrastructure projects that lock us into increased extraction decades into the future. The time for energy democracy has come: wherever possible, communities should collectively control new clean energy systems. Indigenous Peoples and others on the front lines of polluting industrial activity should be first to receive public support for their own clean energy projects.
We want a universal program to build and retrofit energy-efficient housing, ensuring that the lowest-income communities will benefit first. We want high-speed rail powered by just renewables and affordable public transit to unite every community in this country — in place of more cars, pipelines, and exploding trains that endanger and divide us. We want training and resources for workers in carbon-intensive jobs, ensuring they are fully able to participate in the clean energy economy.
We need to invest in our decaying public infrastructure so that it can withstand increasingly frequent extreme weather events. We must develop a more localized and ecologically based agricultural system to reduce reliance on fossil fuels, absorb shocks in the global supply — and produce healthier and more affordable food for everyone.
