Finally the 2013-14 Academic year is over! I look forward to the next academic year (2014-2015), where I will be focusing on revising my classes, working on student learning and assessment, working with my discipline to strengthen student learning and civic engagement at my educational institution (Oakland Community College), and doing lots of other cool stuff (especially a civic literacy project that tries to break down the artificial geopolitical boundaries between Wayne and Oakland counties and get students talking, mobilizing, and pressuring their political leaders to produce socially responsible public policy). The world is in a radical phase right now, but there are lots of real-world issues that can be used in the classroom to teach politics in meaningful ways so that students and educators can all learn the importance of engaging in political life, and working to bend that moral arc of the universe a bit more towards justice. Have fun everyone!!
