Planning to Change the World

Since 2008, Shira has created the cover and interior design for Planning to Change the World: A Plan Book for Social Justice Teachers. This nationally-distributed book is produced by the Education for Liberation Network. It is designed to help teachers translate their vision of a just education into concrete classroom activities.

“An imaginative and innovative idea in the field of education…I hope it will be widely adopted.”
– Howard Zinn, author of A People’s History of the United States

“After 18 years in the classroom I have found a planning book that treats teaching as an art form. On virtually every page of this book, I find myself challenged and inspired to think more deeply about the importance of what I do every day in the classroom.”
– Jeff Duncan-Andrade, Assistant Professor of Raza Studies and Education Administration at San Francisco State University and high school teacher
