Curriculum and Pedagogy Group

Vision/Statement of Purpose

The Curriculum and Pedagogy Group (C&P) was founded to foster inviting, critical, and reflective spaces for the development of critical communities of educational praxis and to amplify these communities’ influence on and in educational settings, phenomena, and experiences.

C&P invites and encourages educators, artists, and activists to mindfully cultivate complex lines of curricular inquiry, pedagogical exploration, and community-based democratic practice via multiple avenues of critical engagement with educational praxis.

Achieving this mission necessitates a curious consideration of sundry approaches, epistemologies, methods, and voices to address the intersectional intricacies of social justice struggles, within and beyond formal educational practice.

Further, this mission is undergirded by C&P’s core values of social justice and equity; authentic, ethical, and critical inquiry; collaborative, generative, and caring community; and the democratic ideal of shared governance and participatory action.

“Invitation” by Shel Silverstein

If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer…
If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax golden tales to spin.
Come in!
come in!


We seek to create a space in which to advance the ideals of progressive curriculum and democratic leadership in education through dialogue and action.
