Announcing TEN Honors

TEN Honors Flyer png.png
Dear Colleagues,
The Transformative Education Network (TEN) at Montclair State University prepares, supports and develops teachers who teach toward antiracism and social justice. TEN’s three programs, The Urban Teacher Residency (UTR), The Newark Teacher Project (NTP) and the Critical Urban Education Speaker Series (CUE) have a shared mission of advancing racial justice in education, offering critical professional development, and actively creating an expanding network of anti-racist educators across our partner districts. We are happy to announce the TEN Honors as a way to recognize our alumni and partner district teachers who are advancing racial and social justice within their classrooms.

We invite any educators who teach in the Newark Board of Education or Orange Public Schools, or who are alumni of Montclair State University’s Transformative Education Networks teacher ed programs, UTR, NTP, or WWTF, to submit artifacts exemplifying how they promote racial or social justice in their curriculum. The deadline for submitting artifacts using this Google form is April 15, 2022.

If you would like to nominate someone else you know who is doing racial and/or social justice teaching in their classroom and meets the eligibility requirements, please complete the nomination section of the Google Form by March 1, 2022 so that we can reach out and invite them to submit artifacts.

TEN will honor two educators at our 2022 June Gathering where they will each share their project, be featured in the TEN Newsletter, and receive a special gift.

In the spirit of collaboration and to continue to grow the network of educators within the TEN community, selected entries will be added to a shared Google drive so that teachers have access to the lessons created and we can continue to inspire one another in this work.

> February 1 - April 15: Accepting submissions
> March 1 - Nominations Due
> June 1 -  Educators notified
> June 17 - TEN end of year celebration

> Currently teaching within the PK-12 grade span

> Are in a NBOE or OPS school, or an alum of MSU’s UTR, NTP, or WWTF

> Available to present at program or willing to record a video presentation if selected

Submission Requirements:
> Submissions should provide the committee with robust evidence as to what teaching for social and/or racial justice looks like in your classroom and may include any combination of the following: lesson plans, unit plans, curriculum overviews, instructional materials, short video recordings, and/or student work.

> Teaching artifacts must have been implemented within the last three years. Artifacts that are not created by the applicant should be properly cited (i.e. a Rethinking Schools lesson or a lesson from NJ’s Amistad curriculum)

> Complete the Google form to submit your artifacts and complete application
