With their illusion of neutrality, traditional hegemonic views of the school curriculum have silenced the voices of the oppressed. As Connell (1992) explains, the search for social justice “requires a counter-hegemonic curriculum …] designed to embody the interests and perspectives of the least advantaged” (p. 139). The ELT class can become an ideal arena to develop a praxis of what Connell (1988) termed curricular justice. This presentation is aimed at exploring how, through socially-committed projects, language educators can contribute to the construction of a more democratic, participatory and equitable society.
