Open Minds

Awardees: Eliza Harris (HGSE), Jenny Muniz (External), and Alba Avila (External)

Summary: Our solution is to create open education resources (OER) so that all teachers have access to free, K-12 TEKs-aligned curricula designed through research-based culturally, community responsive and anti-bias frameworks. Created by current and former educators, our OER curricula — which spans individual lessons to carefully sequenced units — has an essential focus on rigor, multicultural, and bilingual literature. Additionally, we will offer adult learning sessions to support teachers and administrators in districts in using our resources as well as understand the mindset and instructional shift required to systematically change the educational trajectory of our underserved students.
