Be a K-12 Educator during Fall quarter

The UW Riverways Education Partnerships recruits, trains and places UW students as volunteer tutors in Seattle schools and community organizations. We are recruiting tutors for Autumn quarter to support schools and community organizations, and would love to have you! You’ll be doing remote support for educators, either through live online tutoring or by making educational videos that will be sent to K-12 students. These videos have been requested by teachers, community members and kids! Either way, through participating with Riverways, you’ll make a difference for K-12 students in the Seattle area. Through Pipeline’s EDUC 401 seminars, you’ll have a weekly discussion based seminar, and then do a weekly practicum component. You can enroll for 3-5 credits.

See all the seminars available for fall here.


Seminar Spotlights:

EDUC 401 B: COVID-19 and the Move to Online Learning

Tuesdays, 10:30 AM – 11:50 AM


In this new seminar, we will explore how the transition to online learning has both provided new opportunities and exacerbated existing inequities in K-12 education. We will reflect on our own experiences with online learning, and think about how race, ethnicity, ability, and socioeconomic status has intersected with the rapid transition to new educational contexts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.


EDUC 401 C: Tutoring Math and Science
Tuesdays, 3:30 PM – 4:50 PM

In this seminar, we will explore STEM Education as a tool of social justice and examining artifacts of product, process and knowledge. STEM education has become a mainstream topic and an area of consistent investment in K-12 education. As a result of this investment products, process or activities and knowledge are capital in STEM education, yet this does not always amplify social justice values. In this course we’ll examine STEM as a tool of social justice and critique the products, process/activities and knowledge through that lens.

EDUC 401 G: English Language Learners (ELL)
Fridays, 10:30 AM – 11:50 AM

In this seminar we will focus on social forces that impact education for multilingual learners learners in our public schools today. We will discuss teaching methods related to multilingual learners, as well as equitable educational programming related to linguistic theory. In this course I will work to create a supportive space where we can discuss questions and understandings related to shared texts and experiences. I will also encourage you to develop a philosophical stance towards the instruction of multilingual students. We will also share observations and impressions from our personal experiences in our schools and organizations.


Please be safe during this time! Have a great day Huskies!
