Social Justice In Education Newsletter
A WELCOME MESSAGE TO STUDENTS AND FAMILIES!
Dear Students and Parents,
I welcome you all into this new session. I have planned a fantastic session full of experiences, and I would like to share it with you. I hope you are all prepared.
In our studies, we will learn things from what we have done in all courses. Please use this time wisely and feel free to ask for my help if you need any. I encourage you to participate in class and make sure you cooperate in any task assigned. Allow me to retell you that this is a class where we will cover topics surrounding different cultures, different religions, inventions, fashions, races, and other relevant topics. Therefore, given that we will discuss all these different topics, especially culture, and religion, and given that we will be in a very diverse class, it is essential to let you know that the discussions are not meant to insult or hurt anyone’s lifestyle or ethics. This is a class where we need to think about social justice and talk about every part of history, including the parts most people might not like to hear. In this class, we will study ethics, morals, and life skills.
I will teach social justice in this class because social justice “describes the need for society at large to treat individuals equitably. It means justice in terms of the distribution of opportunities, privileges, and wealth within a society” (Gewirtz, 2016).
My approach to teaching social justice in the class will be to give every student equal opportunities to participate in all activities in the classroom. You should all feel free to ask questions and share your opinions when given a chance. You should all feel safe in this class, and I promise to ensure respect for everyone. I will listen to all your questions, and I request you, as students and parents, to keep an open mind about the topics taught in the class. The class will be diverse, everyone will be treated fairly, and any oppression will not be tolerated. There will be no special privileges in my classroom, and all students will be treated fairly (Gewirtz, 2018). All my promises to you will be kept if you, as students and parents, cooperate reasonably during the session.
I hope that we will have a good time together as we go through this educational process together, and I hope we will all have a great moment together to celebrate the success and the nice ending of this session. I wish every student all the best of luck during your course. I am eagerly waiting to start this class with every student, and I hope you are too! In case of any queries, please feel welcome to reach out to me via a call or Email.

We’ll write everything from scratch
Students and their families want to know that their unique personal and cultural backgrounds will be respected and valued in the classroom. Educators must be prepared to effectively communicate this information with students and their families.
For this assignment, create a 250-500 word electronic newsletter that you could email students and their families. Discuss why and how you will teach social justice in your classroom while demonstrating cultural competency in your communication. Address the following in your electronic newsletter:
- Consider how your personal individuality, faith and learning, and prior experiences affect your perceptions and expectations in interacting with students and their families. Share relevant stories or prior experiences.
- Reflect on the key terms and concepts learned throughout the duration of the course and how you will apply them to teaching social justice in your classroom.
- Discuss your approach to teaching social justice in your classroom.
The newsletter should include graphics that are relevant to the content, visually appealing, and use space appropriately.
Support your newsletter with 2-3 scholarly resources and in-text citations
