Time: 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Location: Mission High School (Main Floor): 3750 18th Street, San Francisco, CA 94114
Mission High School is one of the most racially and linguistically diverse high schools in San Francisco, and it is one of few local public schools with both a Newcomer pathway and multiple tiers of support for students with diverse learning needs. The school is committed to anti-racist teaching and building deep, meaningful relationships with students, families, and community partners. Every week, some teachers engage in professional learning communities to grow their practice while others meet as a grade-level team to support a cohort of students. This visit to Mission High School will include a tour of the school, five 20-minute observations of classes across content areas and grade levels, and a conversation with the principal, an instructional coach, and available teachers. AERA Participants should allow at least 15 minutes for travel by car OR at least 30 minutes for travel by public transportation (BART to 16th and Mission OR Muni J Train to Church and 18th). Parking is not permitted at the school and parking in the surrounding area is limited to 2 hours. The visit to Mission High School begins promptly at 8:30 a.m. *This session requires advance online registration.*

Off-Site Visit 2: Reclaiming Space: An Indigenized Narrative of Alcatraz Island
Time: 11:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Location: Alcatraz Island, B201 Fort Mason, San Francisco, CA, Golden Gate National Recreation Area - Alcatraz
In November 1969, American Indian college students amplified the Red Power movement through a 19-month occupation of Alcatraz Island. The occupation reflected efforts of Indigenous peoples to critique publicly the impact of broken treaties, federal assimilation policies, and governmental disregard on Native Nations and to call special attention to the educational needs of students. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of this movement, this off-site visit will provide AERA participants an opportunity to engage the historical space and remember the social movement that transpired at Alcatraz. AERA participants will meet with 1969 occupation organizers and participants as well as local community leaders for an opening discussion at 11:00 a.m. Next, all will travel together by bus to Pier 33, take a ferry ride to Alcatraz, and have a self-guided tour of Alcatraz. A closing group discussion at Alcatraz will conclude by 3:30 p.m. Participants will be able to take one of two afternoon return ferry rides to Pier 33. From there, participants will be responsible for their own transportation. This tour has a maximum capacity of 50 attendees. *This session requires advance online registration.*

Time: 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Location: Oakland High School (Main Office), 1023 MacArthur Blvd, Oakland, CA 94610
Based at the University of California-Berkeley Center for Cities + Schools, Y-PLAN (Youth – Plan, Learn, Act, Now) is an award-winning civic learning strategy and action research initiative that has empowered thousands of young people to tackle real-world problems in their communities through project-based civic learning experiences over the last two decades. This spring, Oakland High School Law & Social Justice Academy juniors have followed the Y-PLAN 5-step methodology to design plans and recommend policies to meet the housing needs of our most vulnerable residents. In this off-site visit, participants will engage one of the highlights of the process: listening to and talking with students as they present their proposals to their civic client, an affordable housing developer who can implement their recommendations. AERA participants will meet at 12:00 p.m. to travel by bus to Oakland High School. The session begins at 1:00 p.m. and concludes at 3:00 p.m. AERA participants will then return by bus. This tour has a maximum capacity of 20 attendees. *This session requires advance online registration.*
