The National SEED Project on Inclusive Curriculum engages teachers from all subject areas, grades, and types of schools to create gender fair, multiculturally equitable, and globally informed education.
Teachers attend a seven-day SEED New Leaders’ Week and are immersed in multicultural SEED materials and methods in preparation for leading SEED seminars in their own schools and communities.
In these local, year-long SEED seminars, SEED leaders and colleagues use their own experiences and those of their students to widen and deepen school and college curricula.
SEED seminars put teachers at the center of their own professional development. SEED assists educators in valuing their own voices so they can, in turn, better value the rich diversity of their students’ voices.
In 2011, SEED received a $2.92 million dollar grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to double the number of SEED leaders trained each year, to waive training fees for teachers from 18 rural and urban schools that serve the most vulnerable populations, to launch a new online presence, and to hold a SEED Leadership Institute for school principals.
