Description

Sometimes I throw my plans for class out the window to respond to some current crisis such as another mass shooting. As a sociologist I am uniquely positioned and feel a deep sense of responsibility to help students process and understand the social world as it is happening. This presentation will offer suggestions for leaning into these disruptions and incorporating time-sensitive events into course material based on my experiences.
