January at Urban means the Month of Understanding: a longstanding Urban tradition! At the start of the new year, student multicultural club and affinity group leaders (MultiCulti) host daily events that give our community an opportunity to explore topics of interest.
This year's theme is Changemakers, spotlighting myriad changes students want to make within themselves and in our world. Among other events during opening week, MOU will feature a Cross the Line activity, screening of the film El Canto del Colibri, affirmative action discussion from an API perspective, and a presentation from local progressive activist Jackie Fielder at the first All School Meeting of the new year.
Watch videos, review presentations slides, and see book lists updated weekly and curated to reflect Month of Understanding curriculum here. You can learn more about the history of Month of Understanding here.
